Feeling a little Charlie Brown today.
I got another rejection letter. I know it is a part of the business, but it is still so not fun. I'm allowing myself one day (twelve hours) of wallowing before I have to snap out of it.
I think you would be very proud of my professional, yet friendly response. And, frankly, rejection letters are better than when editors just ignore you. That's when I turn into high maintenance writer girl. "Does any body work there? Did it get lost in the mail? Why are you ignoring me?" (Kidding! I'm always friendly and professional.)
But, I'm not giving up! It's back to my thousand words.
How do you deal with rejection?
