Rejection Challenge Update

At 11pm last night–at 11pm on my birthday and also the last night of my fiscal year–I got my

100th REJECTION

I started the Challenge on January 1st, thinking that if I really pushed myself to put out 10 submissions a month, I would hit 100 in October, giving me two months to collect all 100 rejections. Instead I hit 107 by the end of August! Two of those were acceptances, and 5 are still pending!

We don’t always talk about how hard it can be submitting fiction, and so I’ve gotten a lot of weird glances and awkward silences when telling people my stats. But I don’t care. I worked hard for each and every rejection and like grey hairs I’m tired of pretending I don’t have any.

I MOTHERFUCKING DID THE CHALLENGE LIKE A CHAMP
