|Never give a rejection letter more importance than it deserves. A rejection letter usually contains just one person's opinion. Two at the most. Granted they are important opinions because they are the opinions of editors, but never forget that a rejection is only one opinion, or two opinions tops. All a rejection letter really means is that the work in question didn't capture that particular person's imagination. Therefore the writer needs to make any improvements it might need and get the work off to someone else ASAP. Seek out that one person who will see the true magic in the work. |
Always consider a rejection as little more than an invitation to send the work out again, this time to someone who will see just how truly wonderful it is.
