Welcome to the new site! And a thought on attitude…
How’re you liking the new site? Is it working for you? I do hope so. I’ve been fighting with this thing all weekend and finally got it to a state I’m beginning to be happy with. Of course, all this tweaking and learning meant my word could hit a problem over the past few days which I need to rectify, but before I bid you adieu and get to it, I thought I would share something. There’s a note of boasting coming up, so feel free to skip to the end if you like.
I share an internet forum with several other writers, ost are beginners like myself but some published, where we shoot the breeze, blow of steam and other cliched activities. I won’t tell you the site, because you might take a peak and in my mind it would be like visiting the sausage factory, but looking over the crowing and complaining over submissions sent, rejected and accepted I’ve been told I have the perfect attitude when it comes to submission rejections. And that is well **** you too!
That makes me sound a tad conceited, but there’s more to it than that. I seem to be averaging over half of rejections coming back with feedback, which is great! I love rejections with feedback! And I look upon those as challenges I have accepted and will eventually win, oh yes, I will win.
Perhaps a psychologist will eventually tell me this is some kind of deep seated desire for love and approval, but until then I’ll keep throwing down the gauntlet to any and all submission calls I come across.
