Most all writers receive rejections. But what is being rejected?
A query or synopsis, a partial or full manuscript. It is obviously easier to handle
a quick rejection of a query letter than a rejection of a partial or worse a full MS after months of correspondence.
It seems to me that we have to keep this in perspective. Complaining of rejection after submitting a few queries is pointless.
Rejection in writing is like rejection in Hollywood, part of the business. No actor of any merit simply shows up in Hollywood and expects to be the next Al Pacino and it is no different for writers. Its a long hard apprenticeship.
I've had my share of rejection in all categories and it's taught me that we need to persevere, remain confident and that writers all need to have tough skin to succeed.
