Got another rejection tonight...

when I got home from work. I know my work is really good and I know it will find great home(s). I am excited for the future! It feels great to try, even if it doesn't always work out. I feel that I accomplish something every time I send out a package, even though what I accomplish is non-tangible - it is a stronger belief in myself and in my work. :)

you keep at it, i get a ton of rejections!! i actually was rejected (or rather, not even acknowledged) by an agent who actually hasn't been getting much work for at least one of her artists...i know because that artist was complaining about it! sometimes those rejections are blessing in disguise, i know i'm glad that agent's not getting 25% of what little she might get me! ; )

Thanks so much, Mrs. B!! I know that it only means it's not a good match, and nothing else. But, well, ya know, it still pinches just a teeny tiny bit... But man, is my skin thicker than it used to be, and growing thicker by the day!

Thank you for sharing your story and also for the encouragement!!! It means a LOT to me! :)

Keep at it Kathy. You will find your perfect client match soon. You are just way too talented and smart to dwell on a few rejections. Keep pitching. Keep pitching. And look outside your current boxes. Maybe there is an entirely different avenue you have not been down yet or even thought of.

I admire you for gathering the courage to MAKE submissions- I haven't gotten there yet! Keep at it!
