I belong to a writing critique group. I belong to a writing accountability group. Both of them are full of writing friends who are encouraging and helpful, in countless ways.
My husband? He tries. However, he's not a writer, so sometimes his attempts at being helpful go awry.
Recently, I read a post from a writer whose family had gotten her a cake made. Emblazoned across the cake was the word Writer.
Too often, we get rejected as writers. We write and draft and revise... and all we get is a "no thanks" from editors and publishers.
Check out my post about my cheerleaders... and about my hubby who means well, but I might limit his megaphone use in the future...
