Imposter syndrome weirdly doesn’t factor into my rejection expertise
Still Life got reviewed in Locus Magazine!!
My little baby is crawling! It’s on its way! Not only have I sent out my first queries, but I’ve already received my first rejection for it!
One thing that occurred to me while doing last year’s 100 Rejection Challenge was that, just like focusing on obtaining acceptances, collecting rejections is still dependent on other people’s decisions.
Life continues post Pitch Wars and it’s inspired me to start a new series: So How Goes Trying To Get Published, Victoria
Some days the rejections don’t even bother me. Some days I see the notification and the first two lines “Dear Victoria…” and I let out strangled wookiee noises and regret giving up wheat/sugar.
There’s lots of work left to do, but I’m proud of myself for doing this much so far.
Don’t you love the word ‘mollusc’? It’s like a piece of toffee in the mouth but requiring less dental work.
A few resolutions for the blag!
One of my stories got accepted!
It’s the first one since I started doing the 100 Rejection Challenge, and after all the weeks of doom and gloom it is a very welcome change!
