It's a part of the journey toward publishing, if you can reach that beautiful destination. We wish it wasn't inevitable, but it pretty much always is. It sucks. It's a downer and a bummer. We'd all probably like to tell it to F off every once on a while :)
I read a fellow writers blog post that included several inspirational quotes to keep her focused on the good throughout rejection, and since I just got another via email today (for a thriller short story I send in) I decided I'd like to do the same for me and my fellow writer friends!
Try to stay positive lovely friends :) hope these will help!
And I saved the best for last!
There were so many good ones, it was hard to stop!
