Fight It Baby!
Ach! Another rejection.
Of course, after I reread the submission, I would’ve rejected the piece myself.
What on earth possessed me?
Oh well, next…
Write, submit, tweak, write, submit, and repeat.
Or something like that.
I recently read a great article that implied women are wimps when it comes to re-submitting.
Ladies – man up!
Stop getting your feelings hurt! Rejections are all subjective. (or so I keep telling myself.) Judges are human after all and need coffee to wake up each morning too. Hmm, unless we are dealing with vampires. Stay on topic Jean.
What I’m trying to say is, caviar is just fish eggs for some people.
So, ladies and gents, submit everywhere again and again.
Because I’m beginning to believe getting published is as much a numbers game as a game of talent.
Have you been rejected lately? How did you deal with it? Did you resubmit right away or wait awhile?
I love comments, almost as much as I love clicks, so after you pass this on to your Facebook and Twitter pals tell me what you think. If you’re not already, please follow me @jeancogdell on Twitter or jean.cogdell on Facebook!
