The five stages of dealing with feedback:
As told by the Rose family of Schitt’s Creek
1.Anger – How could something I create not be perfect?
2. Sadness – I’m a terrible writer I should just quit.
3. Introspection – Oh wait, these are very good points.
4. Acceptance – Edit, edit, edit, edit.
5. Celebrating a better book!
Check out Mariah’s new release The Best Friend Problem!
Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the twenty-first century—Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.
Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find… she’s already pregnant.
As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings? Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?
