My Literary Performance in Gloom
In case you are sitting around wondering about how your own personal literary performance (whatever that means) matches up, the poetess Donna Quesinberry has a serious exploration for you on the topic over at the examiner.com in an article called Rating Personal Literary Performance. Here's a highlight: "So how do you rate your literary performance? By the progression you make, without stress, without writer's block, without angst. If you are writing, publishing, and writing again-you are successful. If you haven't been published yet, you don't stress, you access your submission market, you re-submit. In other words, you continue to write and work with a rejection being something to put in your journal and then let go of. Don't hold onto negativity. That is a barrier to success." Bah.
