Artistic rejection is like taking cod liver oil; they say it’s good for you, you know they’re right, but it can be still tough to swallow. ~Ian Semple
Let’s just be honest here. Rejection sucks. I know, I’m supposed to say something like, all writers deal with rejection, and it’s all part of the journey, but here’s what I think: It sucks.
No one likes to be rejected or have their work rejected. I mean, no one that I know. Do you know anyone who enjoys rejection? I don’t think so. OK, so now that we are clear that you know exactly what I think about rejection, I will now slip into my Big Girl Writing Panties and tell you how I am learning to swallow the disgusting pill of rejection regularly.
