Last week I posted about Doing the To Dos, and I was pleased with myself for getting my butt in gear and submitting the stories I’d been meaning to submit.
One of the two I submitted last week, the story I wrote for a call on a specific topic (a topic on which I felt I had a lot to say) was rejected by form letter in eight days.
Not even a flicker of consideration there. And there’s not a lot of positive I can take away from this other than it’s practice at being rejected.
I will admit that I sulked for a couple of days.
But last night I sat down and started writing again. Well, world-building technically, but it all needs to be done before I can get to the meat of the story. So I’m staggering back up onto my feet.
Time to haul out the Tubthumping again, I guess.
