To be honest, yes, I was afraid of rejections in freelance writing and journalism. However, after 15 years of writing in newspapers and magazines, I have learnt that rejections are a normal part of freelance writing. So, now, I am not afraid of it anymore and I can accept is very easily compared to the past. Now, I know that if I have to focus on my writings and I cannot ensue that all of my writings will be published. Well, now a days, I am mostly in blogging and here, this problem does not exist. So, if you are not very comfortable with rejections then you can focus on blogging.
