So now I find out I didn’t get a Leo Love Merit scholarship to the Taos Writers Conference.
No word about the Room of Her Own Foundation scholarship yet, but so far what I have is:
1. Public Radio Talent Quest. Rejected. but seriously, congrats to the round 1 winners
2. Leo Love Merit Scholarship. Rejected.
3. Room of Her Own scholarship… pending… but not hopeful at this point
4. Story submitted to CommonTies.com … pending… won’t know until the 22nd
So think happy thoughts. Not sure if I can take 4 rejections in a row. Or at least this close together.
Anyone have any tips on how to toughen up? to not let this stuff get to you? to keep plugging away regardless? to get up and do it again tomorrow and the next day? or how do you know when you’re just kidding yourself?
