Which brings me to today’s topic. Perfectly positive writers.
It’s far from easy to push the positive button day in and day out. Writers need to work at doing that, need to develop the habit.
When a rejection arrives, we feel disappointed, hurt, maybe angry. Give yourself a short time to get through that and search for the positives. Was it a lesson? Can you put it behind you and move on?
Do you start a new writing project with a positive attitude? More importantly, can you maintain that positive outlook as you progress? If you begin thinking negative thoughts about the outcome, you’ll think yourself right into failure.
A while back, I suggested you look in the mirror and practice saying ‘I am a writer.’ Do it again but this time day ‘I am a good writer.’ Do it often enough, an you’ll start to believe it.
If you start believing in yourself, you might become that perfectly positive writer.
