    What did you spend your tax return on? With the refunds almost fully out, many people have already spend their share, where others are just receiving them in the mail. What did you do with yours? Are you going to pick up on unpaid bills? Will you spend it on a much needed vacation, or will you simply save it? I know what I am going to do with my tax return, which I just received. I will spend a chunk of change getting things for this blog, such as a new desk chair, so I am not slouched over, while writing.
I received a chair from my father-in-law a few months ago. The chair is a very comfortable, yet it surely has been used a lot. This has made the chair lean in the front. I tried to put a few pillows on the chair, but it would still cause me to have horrible posture, leading to my back to hurt. I am very pain tolerant until it involves my back. I have scoliosis, so it doesn’t take much for my back to hurt. And when my back begins to hurt, I lose my concentration. With my writing career, it is hard to lose concentration and still be able to write an amazing post, so I knew I needed a firm chair.
My wife and I received our taxes a few days ago, and I went to buy a new computer. But then I began to think of my back pains, which pushed getting a chair in front of a new computer. I can save up and get a better computer soon, but I will still need a chair, since the chair is also cheaper, I decided to get a band new chair. The chair cost me less than $100, this is a reasonable price for a firm chair. I got home late that night, it was almost midnight and I had to work the next morning, but I couldn’t leave the chair in the box. I had to put the chair together, or I wouldn’t have slept that night. I spent twenty minutes putting it together, but it never ends after its put together, I had to “test drive” the chair, mainly to make sure I got what I paid for. The chair seemed to be pretty basic, there was not a lean back feature, either. I went to bed sad that night, thinking I wasted my money on something stupid. But then the next morning, I was writing, and went to lay head back on the chair. The chair went backwards, I surely thought that I broke it, but nothing was out of place. I must’ve not leaned back far enough, because it wasn’t broken. Now that I know that it leans back and stuff, I am happy with my purchase. I love this chair, I couldn’t ask for a better chair to rest my tooshie in.
I still have a lot of my refund left, which is being spent on a few bills, but also on new merchandise ideas for this blog. I want to tell you guys more about it, but I still have a few people working with me on it, I should have a few finished products by the end of this week. I can tell you though, they are going to be amazing! If you are interested, please do let me know. Hoodies, hats, shirts, stickers, and business cards will be on top of the products, though.

I am quitting blogging due to: Views and Rejection!

After two months of blogging, I probably have received only 200 views/clicks to my blog. Should I quit? Or should I take it like a man and go on with more post? Should I post more? Or should I take time away from this activity? Is Rejection enough to make me quit?

First, Let me talk to you guys about why I blog. There are three reasons that I blog; I have advice people need to see, A great hobby, and It frees my mind.

Everyone has something to say, even if it doesn’t reach out to everyone, it will reach a few people that need to see it. It’s better to help one person, even if a thousand don’t like the post. As long as you help a few people, your blog is worth keeping!

A great hobby is needed in this world. I was lost when I was in writer’s block- it was a depression I couldn’t get over. But when I got over the disease, I felt alive again. I tried everything from shooting hoops to shooting my brother-in-law with a BB gun (Okay! That was fun). Writing is my passion and a great hobby to have!

It frees my mind from the world that I am tortured to live in. It is good to get away from the continuous stress that I am under. It is good to create a character that can do anything he puts his mind to, even if it is dying and coming back from the dead to devour his enemies!

Do views really matter?

Do they truly matter? If Michael Jordan took to heart what his High School coach said, as bloggers take their views, he would have giving up, and we would have never seen the best basketball player in the world win six championships! It is important to remember this: People can’t hold you down! Yes Michael Jordan had the right to give up, he was rejected. But he didn’t, and you saw where that got him, right?

Why should I continue though?

Continue for yourself! As I just said, People can’t hold you down. They are just a number at the end of the day. If you like to write, and you think you are good. Continue to stroke that pen on that paper! If you give up that easily, you were in it for the fame not for the love!

Why am I getting rejected?

You get rejected because the person can’t relate to your beautiful work, there are times where you might need to work on something; Grammar, Wordiness, fact-checking, revision. Most of the time, you went to the wrong person with your work. Remember every artist gets rejected! It is a part of life. You have to take it as constructive criticism and work on what they said they didn’t like. Don’t dwell on what they said though, change your direction and look for someone else to delight with your work.

What should I do after rejection?

I recently got a lot of constructive criticism, I mourned at first, threatened to quit, posted a sad tweet on twitter, then talked to my fiancé. She told me this: “It is constructive criticism, if you need a break, take a break but don’t quit.” she was right; I wasn’t in a place to quit. The Writer wanted me to correct crucial things that affected his plot. How could I argue with that? I weakened his work to make mine better!

I fixed it, but I didn’t send him the final draft. I waited for him to contact me, which took about a day and a half. In that time, I coped and convinced myself that rejection is a part of life. I accepted the fact that he might not use my work.

You should do this; correct your work and send it to the back-burner, until the designated person asks for it again. Don’t force your work on anyone, that’s a way to get the second and last rejection. As you need time, they do to! Don’t re-send unless they ask for it!

Final thoughts?

My final thoughts for all the writers out there that have been dealing with this pain, is this; Don’t give up. Rejection is a sad part of anyone’s life. You will get rejected in everything that you do; never believe you’re not good enough. Pick up that pen and write again. If you need to take a break than do that, but don’t you dare give up!

I hope that every single one of you guys take this advice as you lie on your bed ready to give up.

Thank you-depression101
