Judy Blume, a world-class writer said, “rejection is a fact of life if you want to be a writer”. We all (including editors and designers) go through the phase at some point but if you ever feel hung up by it, remember why you started and trust the process.
Judy Garland admonished us to “always be a first-rate version of ourself, instead of a second rate version of somebody else”. So, to keep growing, be original but openminded; try out new ideas and perspectives.
As creatives, every word matters but not any more than you do.
