Writers out there, answer me this. How much is too much information?
Do you share with your loved ones and supporters every time you submit an article, think up a story idea, or enter a competition? Do you let them give you encouragement and support each and every time? Do you let them build up your (and their) expectations? What if everything comes to nothing?
Is it better to share the rare piece of good news or is it better to share the regular disappointment of rejections?
If indeed it does end up being the regular disappointment of rejections, should I perhaps be looking at another line of work?
