Haha, so I got my first rejection e-mail. Wow, you know a few years ago I think I might have been choked up about it. My baby was rejected, and with a form letter no less, but hey, the form letter had my name on it! And they were so quick about it, too. I sent it off yesterday, no joke, and got the reply today. I was expecting to wait weeks for that first “No.” Either the lady really hated it, or I did a major formatting “no-no.”
Haha, anyway I think that was less nerve wracking than waiting for someone to call you back after a job interview. Those guys can take forever to tell you “No way!” This lady took 24 hours… that is, if she even read it. I kinda think she didn’t because it just came back too fast.
So, now I feel accomplished. I actually submitted my work to a complete stranger for scrutiny and I’m ready for more. To rejection, I say: NEXT!
