I have a few new battle scars to add to my career. I received a few rejection letters this week (even two on the same day!), but don't worry -- I'm not letting it get me. Why? It took about 20 rejections per each acceptance I've had over my career. I only received 3 "not for us" letters last week. I have plenty more wiggle room before it starts to worry me. So today I'm spending a little time to pick up my work, dust it off and send it right back out.
The only part of this whole experience that is strange is that I receive rejections much quicker now. When I first started, it took two months or more (even with online submissions). Now it takes less than two weeks. I guess I should be glad. It's better than sitting around for six months waiting to send it out somewhere else if it's not accepted.
