Yes, getting a rejection is disappointing, but I’ve worked through it. I’ve done more research to find a new place to send my rejected stories once they have been rewritten. I have also sent the story and the guidelines to another writer to review and give me some feedback as to why my story wasn’t a fit for the magazine. It will be interesting to see the comments for that. Too bad I can’t get that from the magazine directly. Ah well, such is the industry.
As I work in my other job, I also continue to find time to write. Since l last wrote, I have written 2 devotionals, rewritten a non fiction story for children and have a first draft for a comfort food story. I have also critiqued stories for two other writers. I am also writing on another blog where I am doing a play by play of my reading and acting on a book on writing for the children’s market.
So I keep working to compete and to win results!
