Some days I just wake up with a negative attitude towards the reality of writing & the state of the publishing world–between school, time, creative energies, networking, luck, what have you.
And then there are days where that is repaired by a. deciding not to give a shit b. distracting myself with my other accomplishments (note: cleaning, graduating, etc.) or c. getting another acceptance letter. Sometimes, it’s all of them & it’s awesome.
Just remember there’s more to life than writing, but that writing is also life, regardless of who approves or publishes your writing. You do it for you, not for any other reason, but you’ll get what you need.
