Rejection

It’s funny how they always say not to take rejection personally as a writer. “It’s just business”, they say. Of course it is, but that doesn’t make it hurt any less. In fact, I think it sometimes makes it worse, because it’s a business you want to be a part of, and those rejections… those many, many rejections… tell you one thing: you aren’t good enough at writing… at what your very heat beats for… to be included.

So wallow in self-pity and sadness for a while, and forget all their hollow words, because in the end, no matter what they say, you’re the one left behind…

Again.

This, too, shall pass. But at the moment it feels terribly permanent…
