My First Rejection Letter!

I dread this season, even though I love the cool weather!

Okay, so it wasn't eight weeks before they let me know my story was rejected.  But I'm not as devastated as much as I was expecting. Disappointed yes, but thankfully I've received comments and encouragement since I posted my "Sent My First Story In".

 The most frequent and most posted advice was, send in more! Don't just rely upon one story! So that's what I've been doing! Writing, revising and reading other blogs about critique and getting on with it!

Have you ever thought about whether you're a Genius or Late Bloomer writer? Elizabeth S. Craig, Mystery Writing Is Murder, tweeted the following link for the difference of the two, Writer Unboxed.

Me, I'm a late bloomer.
A late Bloomer-how beautiful!

Yay! You're one step closer to being published. At least, that's how I think of it. Cherish each rejection - they are proof of your bravery. And you know what? They don't get easier, no matter what anyone says. Keep on keeping on!

Oh goodluck with your writing!! I have a story that is ready to be submitted, I just need someone to do a once over for me. I've just recently been employed and prior to that, I didn't want to face rejection or criticism (sellin myself to a potential employer is enough!) but now that I'm part of the work force, I am going to start submitting again! Keep on, keeping on!

Don't give up! Ever. I think I have about 100 rejection letters for different things. Wanna trade? Ha, ha, ha. It'll happen sooner than you think!

Ha! Everyone gets rejection letters. In fact,somebody once said (???forget who)that receiving a rejection letter is absolute confirmation that you are indeed, a writer!
Yay for you - GO FOR IT!!!
Great blog-nice to come across a fellow writer.
