Writer’s Self-Affirmation

rant.pngThis occurred to me after being turned down for a job I wanted. Yeah, it stung for a moment. It did. And I spontaneously started saying this to myself in the car.

Because as writers, we have this skill down to a frakking science. And it’s ours, no matter what our day job title is.
I am a writer.

I am used to being turned down.

I am used to be being turned away.

I enjoy it. I want it, because that means I haven’t given up.

Reject me. I will try again.

I will get better.

I will try harder.

I will try somewhere else.

I will try someone with better taste. 1

And I will succeed.
1 Optional line here: And when you realize what an idiot you were for rejecting me, I will be gracious, and smile, and negotiate my wages 50% over what you meant to pay.
