If you’re a writer, guess what? You’re going to get rejected. A lot.
(No, not alot. That’s not a word. If you’re a writer, you need to know these things.)
Here’s how to deal.
1.Put It In Perspective
Yup, there’s a reason your work got rejected.
It’s because your writing is so freaking awesome it would make everything else they publish look bad.
2.Rejection Fucking Sucks
And it’s okay to be upset about it.
Bake yourself some cookies. Specifically, bake these peanut butter cookies. And add one cup of Trader Joe’s mini peanut butter cups.
You know what goes well with those cookies?
A friend told me sending out your writing is like dating.
Dating fucking sucks too.
But if you want to *ahem* get lucky, there’s only one thing to do…
3. Get Back on that Horse!
Take a good, hard look at your piece. Just not while you’re drinking the wine.
Polish the parts that need polishing. Chop the parts that need chopping. Kill those darlings!
And then send it back out.
Your stuff is good. You’re good. Have some faith, and get back on that horse, baby!
Now get writing!
