When "No" Means "Yes"

Sometimes people hear "no" and they don't stop. They're told they can't get something published... and they publish it themselves. They're told they'll never get into a certain publication... and they keep trying until they do.

No can shut people down. However, it can also fire people up.



If you'd like to find out what being told "no" has done to me, check out my post on The Muffin. It might be some nibbling you'll enjoy...

  2. I don't see you as someone who would take "NO" as the final answer until you've tried all other possible avenues to success and a "YES, PLEASE".

  4. I have definitely known both kinds of people, those who give up at the first no, and those who say, "You want to see me accomplish something? Just tell me I can't." Determination is an amazing thing. And now I'm off to the Muffin!

  5. "No" in regard to writing, just says to me either that they're looking for something of a different sort, or that they're dull or crazy. ;-)
