For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, what is unseen is eternal.
    ~2 Corinthians 4:16-18

The Dreaded Rejection Letter

I was cleaning out my writing files and came across this link.

Too many unpublished authors give too much weight to a rejection letter. Sometimes a no is just a no. Or it's a not-right-for-me. Or it's a your-writing-needs-to-improve.

But no matter what the no means, why should we let it demoralize us? None of us deserve to be published. Good writing, perseverance, and a little luck usually pave the yellow brick road to OZ.
