Rejection: toughen the fuck up

The voice remains aloof

By In Thoughts 1 min

So I didn’t win. The voice remains… Aloof. Cagey. Insert your result from thesaurus.com here.
But still, it’s subjective, right? Just because this particular editor didn’t like this particular story, it’s not a reason to chuck in the towel. Not yet, anyway. It’s all practice.
Every writer who’s ever amounted to anything says one thing in common: rejection is part of the game. If I want to make a living from this fiction malarkey someday, I’ll need to toughen the fuck up. And not be a fuck-up.
Who’s for some more “no”?
