I thought I'd share with everyone that got my first rejection today from a semi-pro 'zine. I'm more excited about it than disappointed. If nothing else, it's at least a confimation that I am officially trying. I'm sure it will be at the bottom of a pretty tall stack by this time next year, but we all have to start somewhere.
Feel free to share your rejections and feelings, too, if you like.
Keep it up, BoldWriter! I have two rejections, and I felt the same way you did - they reflect the fact that I at least tried. Of course, I submitted the story without really vetting it, so now I need to rework it before I feel confident again. But...I'm trying!
