First, don't forget to check in for March Madness! Today's check in is right here.
If you're a writer trying to get published, or even one who has been published, you've probably faced rejection. Even if you haven't pursued publishing, you've probably faced rejection in some area. It's one of those common denominator experiences of being human.
It's never pleasant. So none of these are particularly appealing options, but you have to pick the lesser evil:
1. Would you rather...be the reject-or or the reject-ee?
2. Would you rather...be rejected in a long, heartfelt way that you know you and your rejector will remember forever, or in a short, sweet way that you will both easily forget?
3. Would you rather...receive detailed but harsh reasons of why you're being rejected, or oodles of praise about your good points to soften the blow?
And one more bonus question...Would you rather be rejected by mail, email, phone, or in person?
