On the other hand, if you tell yourself over and over this time is THE time and it’s not, you end up being more disappointed. At least, I do.
So, I am either putting myself and my writing down or hyping myself up. I can’t stay somewhere in the middle on this. How are you supposed to soldier on without belief and how are you supposed to believe without getting hope up?
Maybe I should just repeat the statistics on publishing to myself every time I send something out. But, then again, aren’t publishing statistics incredibly depressing in themselves?
Ugh! Tell me I am not alone here.
