100 Rejections.

So finally it has happened. A while back I decided to keep a list until I hit 100 rejections. Here it is in alphabetical glory. I’m starting a new one with a new goal of 150. Let’s see how long it takes.

    I never counted — just stuffed them all into a plastic folder. Which is now bursting. (I’m dating myself with the age of paper, I guess.)

    This is a great and inspiring thing (inspiring because I don’t write enough, submit enough, am prone to excuses and so on…)

    Keep it up.
