A while back I blogged about an article suggesting that writers aim for one hundred rejections per year.
I don't know that I can reasonably aim for one hundred submissions in a year, but I did hit a milestone of sorts last week when I received two - count 'em, TWO - rejections in the same day! Progress!!!
The publications were an online magazine and a local anthology. The rejection from the anthology noted that they received enough entries to fill four books, so I guess that's a comfort.
Onward and upward!
