Aha – yes I must confess, I’ve been sweating over something for the past couple of days that really hasn’t been pleasant.
I’m just about over the disappointment of being turned down for a gig I was really interested in doing – which happens quite often but on this occasion I was invited to apply.
Getting over rejection as a writer is an important aspect of the job, and usually it is pretty easy. However when you’re asked to apply by someone and there’s a good chance you’re going to get it, losing out is a bit of a killer.
I’ve got plenty of other things to worry about atthe moment of course – I have at least one book in the works – so getting over it has been relatively quick.
