My first rejection

Ok, so my friend JS gave me this kick in the pants awhile back. So I write the story that popped into my head and submitted it. I did not win - nor did I make the list of honorable mentions. MMMM, I am remaining optimistic. It was a good story. Many of you have already read it.

So, I think I am going to revise it a bit and submit it somewhere else..... I am not going to lose heart. I can do this. My stories are good.... I would post it on the blog - but I am not sure of the copywrite issues. Someone could steal it..... I need to do some research there first.

So you win some and you lose some, right. And as L says - "you will never know if you do not try!"

that's all you can do. keep trying. one story during one time might not make it. same story a different time? one reason h potter got big at the time it did was that it coincided with the rise of blair's new labour. huge shift in the interests and now who is in a castle?

keep trying. join writing groups and get as many opinions as possible, but they're better from those who don't know you as a friend or family member. i'm sure cols has many writing groups. they'll help. keep trying! a rejection doesn't mean it's not a good story. never EVER think that.
