I’m in a deep funk today. I’m taking this rejection very hard, which is unusual for me. I know everything that I’m “supposed” to do in this situation, (get over it, move on, and work harder) but I’m having a tough time actually following through on those directives. The part of this process that I hate is the inner questioning that starts to fester in your brain. When you get rejected like this you start wondering whether you were crazy to believe that the work was any good in the first place.
I’m frustrated with myself for letting this particular rejection get to me as much as it has, and I’m having trouble staying focused. The only option that I have is to keep making my work, so I forced myself to start these two clay faces this morning irregardless of how I was feeling.
