You should get straight back on, I had a really good month last month on DT with revenue up about 100% on my previous best month and I passed the 300 picture on line mark and got an acceptance rate of 85%.
The end of the month certainly resulted in a celebratory beer and I thought things were looking great for the coming months and I figured I would be knocking on the door of 400 images on line by the end of august and possibly reaching my first payout in a couple of months time.
Unfortunately the month of August started off pretty poorly, ideas seemed to dry up and the ideas I did have were a little different to what I am shooting at the moment, but I went with it and failed spectacularly. I managed to rack up as many refusals in 3 days as I did in the entire month of July :(
Don't tell too many folk but I have to admit to the fact that my confidence had been rocked somewhat but lets face it there are bound to be ups and downs when learning how to compete in the stock market. I have revovered a little in he last few days although diappointingly I have reverted to some shots that I do not think are all that creative but they are what I have to work with at the moment.
It is tough when your confidence gets a bit of a slap but I am ploddoing on and hope for a better nd week of August than the 1st week :D
