Handling rejection

We got back early last night and our neighbor brought over our mail pile this morning. At the bottom of my pile was an SASE I had sent to the agent I met at the Midwest Lit Fest. Getting your SASE back is always bad - if they want your story, they'll call. So yes, I have received my first official rejection. On the plus side, it was a personalized letter specifically about my story, not a form rejection. So while I'm a litle sad about being rejected, I'm making my list of who to send the story to next. It's all part of the process.

someone once told me that from the time you get your first rejection letter, you are officially a writer. so congratulations.
