Call For Submissions — Life After Disappointment

As writers, we’ve all dealt with disappointment. Even if we look to our lives outside of writing, disappointment is a normal part of our experience as people.

But disappointments are meant to be overcome. We can accept the emotions that come with disappointment, but we shouldn’t let them dictate how we live and exist in our relationships.

For this week’s writing prompt, tell us about a time you’ve overcome major disappointment. What did you do? How did you overcome your disappointment?

Same rules as always:

  • You can submit to this or ANY of our past writing prompts. Just scroll through our previous newsletters. They’ll be marked “Call for Submissions.”
  • If you’re already a writer for CRY, go ahead and submit.
  • Be as creative as you want in your submissions. As long as you stick to the topic, we’ll consider it.
  • Just because you submit doesn’t mean we’ll post. If you haven’t heard back from us in three days, consider that a pass.
