KG ... I agree! Even in failure we learn a great deal, and sometimes we need to face the hard reality that our approach is not working or not reaching an audience.

We also need to be persistent. Look at the number of "rejection" slips that even the best writers receive -- it shows that persistence pays off.


If you don't give your characters realistic conflicts to resolve in the course of your story, then you are failing your story, your charaters and more importantly, your readers.

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting. If you'd like to collaborate on a project, have writing/technology/creativity info to share, or want to say, "Hi," contact me at kgwritenow (at) yahoo dot com.
