You know what?
I had the whole day to myself yesterday and what did I do?
Sleep and read my book.

I'm not happy with myself about that because it really is a step in the wrong direction.
I wonder if I colonically ejected all my fire and passion for writing over the New Year period?
It certainly feels like it.

However, to be honest, the rejection did take the wind out of my sails a tad, (even though I was secretly expecting it.).
Perhaps it really is just not good enough?

Now, now Reg...enough of this 'not good enough' rubbish. You are ill and the self-belief function is faulty as a result. It is a medical condition and you will recover.
I know, I have had 4 weeks of illness now and mine is in a seriously weakened condition.


ps I am in Moscow and using my wife's account to send the comment.

Quite right Graham,

I've set myself a target of at least 14 rejections before I get anything published! So far I have had 2 so lots more to go yet!

Your book WILL sell but, if you're finding it hard to go through it critically, do NOT buy The 38 Most Common Mistakes in Writing Fiction - it will make you want to rewrite the whole thing :-)
