Rejection vlog Part 2

Well, this was kind of a mess. I'll remember to do a lighting check next time. And turn off my washer and dryer. :) I left it as if for a reason though. This blog does say its about me "unedited". This is probably one of the first real unedited looks into my life.

  1. The personal rejections are the worse. Thanks for sharing, Charity.

  3. So sad when the ones who are closest say hurtful things based on their needs. Good luck with your writing; keep making time for you.

  4. People that are behind the personal rejections need to be told right in their face how rude and hurtful they are being. NO one from a philosopher to a scientist in a billion years of evolution has been able to tell anyone what the meaning of life is. So without a concrete definition of the meaning of life, I say that everything from writing to working at 7-Eleven is valid.

    EVERYTHING.

    If you want to chop wood or if you want to go to a writer's conference. IT ALL HOLDS THE SAME IMPORTANCE. It makes me mad when I get personal rejections because it is more than just a rejection. It is a judgment from someone that thinks that they know how you should be spending your time AS IF there were a better way to go about doing so. I challenge any of these jerks to point out to me how writing is a waste of time in any way compared to their alternative and we shall weigh the importance together on the scales of the meaning of life.

    Oh and I'm glad you don't give up on your writing. Personally, I think you're THERE. That is, you're ready for a publishing contract. The only quality you don't possess in abundance apparently is LUCK. I hope you get lucky. (Read my blog post today if you want to know more about what I mean by "luck").

  5. Argh, no kidding the publishing world moves at a glacial pace. I'm discovering that firsthand. Very cool that you got to go to Janice Hardy's book release tho!

    Have fun "wasting time" writing--haha. Really, it's MUCH more productive and creative than watching TV or playing video/computer games, which a lot of people do. Chin up! and thanks for the encouragement for writers everywhere. :)

  6. Took me a while to get around to watching this, but I'm so glad I did. I really felt for you hearing your story, and I have experienced some of those same rejections myself. It's hard to find that balance, but we've just got to keep striving because writing is such a big part of who we are. :-)
