First Rejection of the Year

Gosh darn it, it seems I have my first rejection for 2008. Hmmm… I do wonder if this is a good sign or a bad sign. Oh well, rejections are part of the process, and I might as well start building that pile early, eh. However, the sad part is this rejection makes my second one from this publication, and the publication is among my list of goals for 2008. I can say, however, they’re not bad rejections. Both times the response said they liked my ideas and gave a reason as to why they couldn’t accept it. This time the managing editor said that while my ideas were good ones, unfortunately, they have an “overstocked inventory” at this time. Hey, at least they took the time to let me know my ideas were good and that I could shop elsewhere, which I have already begun. All I had to do was tweak the query to fit the next publication on my list and hit “Send.” Oh, I can’t forget, I prayed before hitting the “Send” button, too.

Aside from my first rejection of the year, how has your year being going thus far? Have you had any rejections yet? Are you working on those goals? Tell me all about it. I’d love to hear how things are going for you.
