Rejection, Acceptance and Publication — A discussion of what we as writers do and do not have control of.
Musing on Rejection — My theory about the levels of editorial response. The quality of rejection is not strained.
A few comments on acceptances and rejections — A more recent post on my personal rejection history.
Presented for your reading pleasure. I personally prefer to view rejections as the cost of doing business, rather than taking them as personal slights, or assuming some form of conspiratorial exclusion. But that's just me, and I do treasure my sanity.
