A friend of mine once said he believed the trick to dealing with rejection was to revel in it. He had a plan to cover the walls of his room in rejection letters.

He never did it. It was a good idea though.

So there's one. One letter pinned onto the wall.


  1. Outstanding and yet stink.

    (I am still a little freaked out by "There are Monsters", two days after watching it.)

  2. Good work. Get that stuff out there. Fo sho my nizzle rizzle bobizzle.

  3. If that's your first rejection, you should be sending more stuff out there! Good on you for starting to get your work out there into the world. You'll get more rejections, but you'll get acceptances too. I think that expecting them, collecting them, is a good philosophy, because karmicly I think you need to get them. It's like looking at all the crappy flats before you find the good one. Every rejection gets you closer to publication.

  4. Thank you, thank you.

    Thank you.
