[process] The fine art of rejections

mikigarrison and I were discussed rejectomancy this afternoon, which prompted me to dig into my own blog archives for material on the fine art of rejections. Apropos of that, see the following:

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.

Feel free to share your thoughts in comments.
