It has been a tough last couple weeks for me. I am now into my fourth month of unemployment and some days I really don’t feel like applying for any more jobs. I mean, I’ve already got resumes numbering in the hundred’s out there already.
But, despite the lack of success, I continue to soldier on because I have to. I’ve tried several different tactics and I know I will try several more until I meet with success.
Getting your work published is exactly the same.
You’ve got to keep working towards the goal, even when you’ve received dozens, maybe hundreds of rejections. If something isn’t working, you change up your tactics too. The only thing you cannot do is give up.
The moment you do that, you are finished because the likelihood that someone will simply call you out of the blue is slim to none. You have to want it badly enough to fight through the rejections, no matter how much they might hurt.
I will get back to work eventually just like I will get my novels published eventually. I’ve already managed to get some of my short work in print so I know I can do it.
Job hunting is still my number one priority. Writing on GalaxyBillies, my YA Revisions and podcast recording round out my day. I hope you are all doing OK.
