Thursday's Links to Writing & Marketing Blog Posts

By: Jeff Goins

I’ve been on a confidence kick lately. From my experience as a freelancer, I’ve learned that it takes more than good content to become a published writer. You have to learn how to stand up to rejection.

When it comes to writing, you need a few things (other than talent) to succeed:
  • You need relationships.
  • You need connections.
  • You need to learn how to pitch.

When you’re getting started (at anything, really), you’re scared. You’re insecure. You don’t want to come off as some kind of arrogant jerk.

So what do you do? You say “no” for other people.

And this is absolutely the best way to get rejected.
