Are you resilient – and if not, how can you become so? #resilience #writing #writers #strong

Yesterday I talked about ways to cope when you are having a ‘bad writing day’. How to stay motivated and not lose heart.

An important part of that is to develop resilience. Check out the tree above – it is desperately hanging on, determined not to die or fall down. How often do we feel like that?

I liked this short but insightful post about resilience. http://irrationalliving.com/blog/2015/06/09/are-you-resilient-enough/

We will all have times when we need resilience – the one star reviews (the ones you will NEVER respond to), the days when you read your latest draft and think that it’s rubbish, the days when you have writer’s block… But there are habits and tricks we can all develop to be able to cope with these. Do you have a set of tricks in your arsenal that help you to stay resilient?
