I may have mentioned this article before, but I found a reference to it in my computer files and feel it’s worth mention:
30 famous authors whose works were rejected (repeatedly, and sometimes rudely) by publishers — an article by Michelle Kerns for examiner.com.
We all need to remember this.
Making rejection fun: I like that, Jason.
I designed a game called Rejection Therapy back in 2009 to encourage myself to get out of my comfort zone more. It was amazingly effective and enlightening (for as long as I did it).
If anyone wants to try it, it's here: http://rejectiontherapy.com
