Lately, I’ve been lurking in the Absolute Write Forums under “Rejection and Dejection.” I’ve been preparing myself for my first rejection. It’ll sting for a minute or two, but overall it’ll be an accomplishment. I put myself out there. It’ll mean I’m a working writer dedicated to getting published. That’s every writer’s goal, right?
I have five stories that I submitted to magazines/online journals. I’m editing number six, so I can send it out soon. They say the more new stories you produce and send out, the less time you’ll obsess over getting a rejection/acceptance. Yeah right! Not for me. I check my email and Submittable account every day. I guess I’m impatient hee hee.
I wish I had news for you guys. I plan on sharing my rejections as well as my acceptances–that’s the point of this blog: sharing my publishing journey. I started submitting in January, so hopefully I’ll hear from a market soon. I’ll keep you guys updated.
