Here is a great post on dealing with rejection
When you read your story, does it sound off, maybe you can’t quite put your finger on it, but you know you’ve done something wrong? Sometimes–maybe even lots of times–there are simple fixes. These writer’s tips will come at you once a week, giving you plenty of time to go through your story and make the adjustments.
Today’s tip: A rejection simply means ‘No’.
This tip is from Janet Reid. She’s an agent with Fine Print Literary Management who represents thrillers, mysteries, and more. I follow her blog where she offers pithy, realistic advice to writers on a weekly basis. She always seems down-to-earth and provides a touch of humor to make the bad (or good) news go down better. Her list of tips for writers is spot-on–I don’t think there’s one I don’t agree with:
- Be bold
- Be tenacious
- Be rational
- Be knowledgeable
- Be competent
- Be ready
