The Rejection Collector
My goal is to submit 250 times this year. I am currently at 86 submissions. Which pieces are in consideration? Which pieces can I submit again?
Besides the Excel spreadsheet tracking my submissions, I started a bound journal to track each individual piece. Each entry contains the title and poetry or fiction or creative nonfiction or art, listing where I’ve submitted it and the date of rejection.
Robert A. Heinlein’s rules come in handy here:
Rule Four: You Must Put Your Story on the Market and
Rule Five: You Must Keep it on the Market until it has Sold
