My first rejection letter arrived today!
While acceptance is preferred, if not desired, I’m pleased to complete the cycle. As a fledging writer, I’ve mustered up courage to write, to edit my writing, and then submit; all unfamiliar and, at times, painful steps. I’m pleased with my attempt and encouraged to try again. And, if nothing else, since all writers receive rejection notices, I’m officially part of the club.
Now on to more pressing matters – where to place the letter itself: start wallpapering, create a file, shove it into a drawer, or leave it on the desk for motivation?
