This is a great approach to submissions and rejections

From Literary Hub, Why You Should Aim For 100 Rejections a Year. There are some great observations in the article. I especially liked the idea of shellacking a desk with rejection letters. I just might start with the rejection letter I got from the Guppies for their upcoming anthology Fish Out of Water, along with the scorecard that showed one judge loved my story, one liked it a lot, and judge number three flat-out hated it. Needless to say, when I got the acceptance email from Sisters in Crime L.A. for LAst Resort, it really went a long way in easing the pain. But at least I got a rejection. It meant I tried. You can't be accepted or rejected if you don't submit.
