When I first pitched the idea of selling my books as screenplays--many negative people informed me that I couldn't do it. I wasn't a bestselling author, that it would be impossible for my novels to sell as a movie. That I wasn't strong enough as an author.
Thankfully, those negative people were all wrong and the advice was terrible. IF I would have listened I wouldn't have great projects in the works today.
Please keep in mind that I'm not telling you to NOT listen to your critique partners or those who are qualified to give you advice. What I am saying is--do not listen to those who do not support your dreams, those who give mean spirited and negative reviews to cut you down.
Keep pushing forward and do not abandon your dreams.
I believe in you!
Have a beautiful weekend! Angie
