Some of you may have read my essay on my mother and swimming in SYW. Well, I got rejected by a few magazines today! :( I really thought the essay had potential, so it's a bit disappointing.

But I'll keep going...on to the next publication!! :)

keep trying. I know how disappointed you must feel.

Just because something got rejected that doesn't mean it doesn't have potential. There's just X amount of space while there's X+many more articles vying for that space.

Keep going, Freckles. You've been doing great, and it'll only get better.

I used to know a poet, he scraped together enough to buy himself a small apartment/flat but couldn't afford to decorate. Instead, he would take the rejection letters and paste them on the wall as wallpaper, they looked great! He also pasted his acceptance letters up in his writing room, it was the box room. Suffice to say, he decorated quickly with rejection slips, he always told me that to him it was a positive, showing that acceptance in any form is small and special, and that rejection was always better than being ignored.
