Author’s Chronicles: Just Like a BandAid …

 

… the faster you pull it off the less it hurts.

So far I have received two rejections and surprisingly I’m okay with it.

I think my mind set is grounded in realistic pessimism. Since I am unpublished writer the chances of my first few submissions to be accepted is a stretch. But that is A-Ok. I can use this time to invest in writing additional essays and beef up my arsenal of submission ready work to rotate through until something gets published.

And to be quite honest I just figure that there’s an editor somewhere out there who will appreciate my work and will deem it worthy of publishing. She or he is out there, I just need to forge ahead and continue to submit until I find them. There’s an old saying that, ‘even a blind dog will find a bone if it digs enough holes’ – so that is exactly what I plan to do … keep digging holes. Arf!

  1. You’ve got the right attitude. When you have talent and ambition, I really think the trick to getting published is getting your work in front of the right editor. Nearly every story I’ve published was rejected at least once. Hell, one story was rejected thirteen times before it sold. So keep writing, keep submitting, and keep looking for those appreciative editors. 😉
