So, I have now left sunny Florida and have now returned to chilly NC. My trip was great... wonderful, actually, since it sparked so many new story ideas and I was writing like crazy. In an earlier post I mentioned that I had submitted a work to Highlights magazine. They sent me a very nice rejection letter, saying that the only reason they did not accept was because the story did not suit their current needs. That's fine. I filed my rejection letter away with all the others.
A lot of authors and writers look at rejection letters as being depressing, but I don't. With every single one I get closer and closer to receiving that "Yes, we want YOU!" letter. So I'll keep typing away and pressing forward!
About rejection letters. Are you like me with them or do you simply despise them and think that whoever read your work couldn't see talent if it jumped up and bit them on the nose?
