Thank You KayLaAnn for reminding us that ‘No is just a word’
When I was younger, my mother gave me the best advice I have ever received and I have tried to stick to it all my life. Often times, when I was scared of asking a question, my mother would say:
“Ask anyway. The worst thing they can do is say no.”
Now, when my mother said this, she wasn’t talking about writing, or blogging, or publishing, or anything like that. And yet, her words of wisdom apply to almost everything I do in my writing career.
Am I scared of getting feedback? Of course, I am! People can be mean.
But I ask for outside opinions anyway.
The worst thing they can do is say they don’t like it (not everyone will).
Am I scared of submitting my work to publishing houses? Of course!
But I ask for their response anyway.
They worst they can say is “no thank you.”
