Writers are dramatic people (including me). Let's face it, we couldn't write dramatic scenes without a proliferous imagination and a flair for incredible twists and turns.
But sometimes this doesn't work for our real lives. Every rejection feels personal. Every critique a knife slipping down our skin.
Seriously, the sky is not falling. So what if you don't get an agent, publisher, or the numbers you're shooting for. You're no worse off than you were last week. You still have the ability to do something you love--something many, many people in the world don't have (think of the people that can't afford to feed there kids).
Instead of focusing so hard on the final 10 pages of your writing career, enjoy the novel!
