Road to Recovery

Words are starting to hit the screen again, and though they may not be as numerous in the past, I am grateful. I lost a few months of progress, which is unacceptable, but I can’t linger on that fact. I just have to reestablish the good writing habits I was starting to pick up. Oh yeah, and I should also keep editing my damn book.

Even a rejection letter that I was hit with yesterday did not deter me. I was almost happy to receive it since it gave me real feedback on the story, and not a simple “Almost, but not quite” or form rejection. Thanks to Necrotic Tissue for doing that; I will have to sub with them again someday.

I have wondered recently if other authors get a bit defiant like I do in the face of rejection. A feeling where you want to send the same magazine more of your work immediately just to prove that it is worthy of publication. Anyone out there care to comment?
