The thing about persistence... is that I have none!
This is the worst thing a freelance writer could lack.
I get a single, solitary rejection letter, and I'm like, "MK, You are right, I AM a terrible writer..." (self-pity continues...) (for days...)
Those people who call for a job every week until the (future) boss finally caves? I am not those people. Well, not yet, right?
What is the worst that could happen?? They have all ready said no, right? Why am I so afraid they will say no again?
And this is my favorite persistent little Panda: Po in Kung Fu Panda!
Tigress: [seeing Po bounce down the palace steps] If he's smart, he won't come back up those steps.
Monkey: But he will.
Viper: He's not gonna quit, is he?
Mantis: He's not gonna quit bouncing, I'll tell you that.
