View Full Version : Boy, when it rains it pours rejections ...

Well, today, which is usually a good mail day, sure was miserable. First, I get a rejection on my greetings from PKP and thought I'd at least get one acceptance. I was so hoping for that. It's been almost two years that I had acceptance on greetings. Then I get a rejection from tiny prints, no word from JJP, so that means a no go, also and nothing in the mail at all... Mo' :Cake:s 4 meh :D Anyone want to share some? :) (The :Cake:s, I mean).

Gib cakes! I'll bring the ultimate chocolate milk -- Organic Valley, lowfat, no less! And some chocolate fudge brownie ice cream, what the hey.

Then we'll flounce around and drawl like Scarlett: "Tomorrah is anotha day!"

You're accepted in my book, SusieQ. Don't back down...keep on pushing!

Aw, Susie, many hugs. It always seems to happen that way, huh? Radio silence for ages, then suddenly it's pouring responses (good or bad).

Keep your chin up and your head in the game.

Rejections suck. But there is a bright side. At least rejections mean you're ahead of me. I have to, like, finish stuff, and then edit it when it's done. Oh, and then... :scared: submit it.

:Wha: What a concept!

To the next submission, which shall be an acceptance, it hath been declareth.

When I get multiple rejections on one day I try to look on the bright side when I get the second one by telling myself that at least the second one didn't ruin a good day...

I think I had a trifecta once. Not much fun.

But there's only one direction--forward. Keep on pushing, Susie. After a chocolate break, that is. (((hugz)))

08-10-2010, 11:55 PM
Aww thx much, Haggis 'n lkp. You're right, :Cake:s all around ! :D

At this point, I think it may be useful to quote Devil Ledbetter's original post in the Daily Rejection thread:

Hi. I'm Devil and I'm a reject. It has been 11 hours since my last rejection.

I am learning to live with rejection because rejection means I'm querying, and querying is something I avoided for a very long time. I've managed to double my number of rejections in just two weeks. I did that by increasing the number of queries I'd sent by six times.

My goal is to land an agent in under 200 queries.

You see? You're querying -- that's good!

Hey Susie, good you got those out of the way, you're just that much nearer to acceptance now!
Hugs from me too!
