#ShareYourRejections where do I start! I sometimes tell this when invited to talk to students - I only got into writing short stories properly when I met this writer and learned about the process of submission and rejection. The very idea of a rejection was exciting!
It meant someone was actually reading it! So that was very cool. With short fiction writing, the only thing you could ever hope for is to increase your batting average of rejections/acceptances, but that's ALL you can hope for.
And, of course, hope an actual contributor to the anthology dies so you end up selling the story they initially rejected (this genuinely happened to me).
