Writer Mama Giveaway September 3

Today's question for the Writer Mama giveaway:

What’s your biggest block or fear about editors when it comes to submitting your writing for consideration? (And if you don’t have blocks or fears about editors any longer…how did you rise above them?) Inquiring minds want to know.

I have the fear of rejection. I have been brave enough to write the article of my heart, and my first real query was accepted on spec. I sent my article, and it was rejected. It hurt so badly to have it rejected, because I thought this was IT. THE article I felt would be MY niche. MY story. ME. The rejection felt like a slam against not only my writing, but the experience about which I'd written. It hurt. That article languishes away on my hard drive, even now.
