How do you deal with rejection and/or criticism?
Rejection and criticism are never easy to deal with.
take a deep breath and try to see things from the publisher/editor/critic's point of view. Keep the good comments (for whenever you need a morale boost) and take all negativity with a pinch of salt.
Though a good cry and a pint of ice cream never hurt either.
How can I get published too?
The same way any other writer does.
Write, write, write. Then edit, edit, edit - it helps to join or find a group of people you can trust to provide you with honest feedback so
you can get a second opinion.
Just remember to always follow the guidelines provided by each journal or publisher before you send them your work.
How do you deal with writer's block?
Sometimes our muse, and our minds, needs a break
every writer finds their own way of handling the block.
Personally, I find distracting myself by walking outside with my dogs,
a book, playing a game, or tackling housework can help. Otherwise I
talk to my partner or my closest writing friends about the novel to see if they can bring a fresh eye to the problem.
The one thing you must never do is stop writing altogether.
