No doubt you have heard of authors who have made it big but have had many rejections before being spotted. The trouble with rejection is it can send you down the path wailing:

“I’m not good enough…” Along with huge dollops of self-doubt. Suddenly your confidence has spiralled into the abyss.

I’ve known people to get cross, and a few, even sent off angry emails to the publisher telling them they have no idea what they’re talking about.


Sorry – in the publishing world it means you will need to grow a pair.

Take heart. Take the reject out of the equation – eject those thoughts right out of your head – easier said than done, I know.

Rejection happens. Stick with it. If you enjoy writing – do just that. Keep writing! Its free therapy if nothing else

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

      I'm afraid I cant answer that question. Sorry.

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    • manager

      I write for budding authors not trolls. They seem to link into key words. Robots are clearly trying to syntax.

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

    • manager

      I think I answered this question. If someone wishes to steal my stuff, then they're not creative. It has to come from the heart, though I guess many things are repeated, we are a vast community. Copywrite helps protect, but not guaranteed. I think there is a symbol that can be watermarked over your work to stop it being cut and pasted as well. Hope this helps.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

    • manager

      I guess its a personal thing. WP works for me. I also dont want to spend vast amounts of money. I think you may be asking the wrong person about importing your content into another platform because I simply do not know? Maybe I'll put the question to some of my writing buddies, if I get a good response, I'll let you know.

    • manager

      I'm sure I responded to this, but cant see the answer! At a risk of repeating myself. If you feel you need to move then do. If you have the money to spend its up to you. It all depends I guess on how important this is to you. I'm getting on okay with WP at the moment.

      I think we handle rejection in all sorts of ways. All I can say is try not to be disheartened... and as the famous saying goes, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

    • manager

      Thanks Eric, I'm not sure what Safari is. (I am an IT Numpty!) though my tech guy tells me (before your question) sometimes if it is viewed on a mob or similar device this may happen? Thanks for visiting my site. I hope its useful.

    • manager

      I use who are really great. My writing skills are not really up to scratch. No other payment. All my own work. Thank you for feedback and I hope this answers your question. Can I possibly be cheeky and ask if you could share a link to your family and friends for me? Thank you happy holidays!
