Hope Springs Eternal

There are two things a writer can (usually) count on: Hope and Rejection. When you stop hoping, you stop writing, and when you stop getting rejections, it means you've stopped submitting your work and stopped letting other people read it. Neither one is good.

So here I am, letting hope spring eternal. And here I wait for the rejections to come in, because come they will. It's part of being a writer, and part of submitting your work. But isn't it that way with anything creative that you do? Someone will not like it. It will be rejected, and people will not always be nice about it. But I have a pretty thick skin now. I've lived long enough to earn that thick skin.
