I received a rejection letter in the mail today. You're not a real writer until you've gotten a rejection letter, so I read somewhere on the Internet.
I'm still waiting from one more magazine and then I will stop waiting in the mail everyday for a rejection/acceptance.
And then the cycle starts over again because I'm going to send out some more stuff and then be waiting for the mail again...
This is my third rejection letter. Compared to some, that's not a lot. Compared to others, well, they've never even tried. So I'm in the game. I'm a rookie.
