So, you've been rejected by a publisher/literary magazine?

Obviously, it's time to pop the cork on an appropos vintage of your favorite confidence juice.

Penguin rejected you? What should you drink?

Try one of these!

So, Harlequin has rejected you?

How about this popular, cheap, and easy to drink classic that fills our grocery stores, much like the harlequin romances?


Anyone else have any good ideas?

For any of our script writers out there that've been rejected:

Very delicious.

Very nice! Full-bodied, with a powerful sucker punch that you pay more for the name Coppola!And, in case you've been rejected by St. Marten's Press, remember this:"The great St. Martin, the glory of Gaul and the light of the Western church in the fourth age, was a native of Sabaria, a town of Upper Pannonia, the ruins of which appear upon the river Gunez, in Lower Hungary, two leagues from Sarwar, upon the Raab, near the confines of Austria and Stiria. " from http://www.ewtn.com/library/MARY/STMARTIN.htm?

Thus, we need Austrian wine to go with the punch in our gut.

Hmmm.

I'd say that a Harlequin rejection rates Thunderbird.

Penguin would be Mad Dog 20/20.

Ooh! When you get rejected from any religious publication, there's clearly something wrong w/ your soul:

If you're rejected by Random House, you should just close your eyes & reach into the wine cabinet

Well. . . if your rejected the best wine to drink would probably be a cheap one.

ARGH! PLEASE READ the "PLEASE READ: Differences between TIO and Office Party" thread sticky'd to the top of this forum. Things have changed around here.

I suggest drinking Rubbing Alcohol if you were rejected by PA. ;)

ARGH! PLEASE READ the "PLEASE READ: Differences between TIO and Office Party" thread sticky'd to the top of this forum. Things have changed around here.Okay then.

Getting Rejected Makes Baby Jesus Cry. Therefore, you should break into your local Sacristy and steal the Consecrated Wine (my RC Church used Manichevitz btw.). The greater sacrilege covers the lesser one of the publisher's failing to appreciate your art.

Unless you're Mormon. Then guzzle Welch's Grape Juice from a paper bag.

And don't forget to demonstrate outside an Abortion CLinic while burning an American Flag and carrying a sign reading "Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Min!"

If you get a rejection slip do not DO NOT!!!!!!!!! mix Rose' with Pink lemonade and make coolers. Nothing is bad enough to warrant that.

Trust me.

When I had a sci/fi novel turned down because of "political incorrectness" issues I simply reached deep into the cushions of my threadbare couch, removed all the coins I found, bought a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20, stood on a street corner next to a trashy alley entrance, and shared my misery with my new found friends as they staggered up to me wanting to share my problems and wine.

If I submitted to Paulist Press, Concordia or Franciscan Communications, I'd have a bottle of this chilling.

ALL OF IT. And when you are finished with that, I understand there are liquor stores full of the heavy duty stuff.....

Just got a rejection letter from Highlights today-

Can I at least make it chocolate?
