Okay, I'll admit rejection is just a horribly, ugly experience. And I know some authors take it very hard, they take it personally.
I *raising my hand* like nearly every other author have felt several stings of rejection. But I do understand it's a single opinion. I do understand it's all part of the business. Paying dues so to speak.
But honestly- for me -rejection didn't compare to my daddy's passing. And I know, no, I hope each rejection brings me a step closer to NY success. :)
