V is for Vultures
We all have 'em. And sometimes they come in the form of family and friends. Often they come in the form of ourselves though.
For example, how many people have you told you're a writer? When someone asks what you do, do you tell them you write? It took me a long time before I had the nerve to let the "world" know I was a writer. Naturally, the next question is "what have you had published" or some form of that. And it's hard to consider yourself a writer when the answer is nothing. But the thing is, if you are writing, you are a writer. Even if you don't have anything published.
Mine like to sit in the yard and laugh when I get a Negative Marketing Report. They've learned not to come inside. I just ignore 'em and send my work back out.
