Let’s Talk About Rejections

Let’s Talk About Rejections

Let’s face it, we all hate receiving the words, “Thank you for sending in your submission, but we didn’t accept it.”

You might get an explanation for the reason why, or you may not. If you received the reason then check it over carefully. Do you understand what they are trying to tell you about your story? Did you try to make sense of it, or did you just get mad and throw it away?

Hopefully you didn’t get mad and throw it away. At least save it.…

Coping with Rejection

Coping With Rejection

By

Vicki Hinze

First, let’s set the record straight. We don’t want to just cope with rejection. We want to cope with it constructively.

Allowing rejection to shove us into a mental pit of despair isn’t healthy and we don’t want that to…

Our E-mail Signature: Choosing Courteous and Great Marketing by Carolyn Howard-Johnson

In a public e-mail to her clients, someone near and dear to me (an expert) said most people look at the first two lines of an email. That’s it. They aren’t interested in fishing through pages of post-signature blather. People need to have ways to learn about you, not reasons to put up shields.” She advised three or four lines, tops. Boy, did that set me off? So, these people we send mail to are in such a hurry that they’d rather spend time looking up in dozens of places for the information…

I’M 70 TODAY … hip-hip hooray. [Really in July]

I am 70 TODAY … hip-hip-hooray

Dear frayed and tainted diary,

Constant Noise (flash short story)

The streets of Tokyo teemed with people. A never ending flow of suits and interesting fashion statements. Crowed sidewalks and jammed traffic. Bumper to bumper people and cars. Just another weekday in the land of the rising sun.

Unlike most ex-pats living here, it wasn’t the culture that brought me, Jonathan Merced, from Perth. Old things and historic sites don’t interest me. Never have.

I came here for the hi-tech gadgets and…

Where to with space exploration?

Now that Pluto and Ceres have been visited, the question then becomes, what now with space exploration? I think we should start thinking beyond sending more rovers and probes, although that does not mean we stop sending rovers and probes. Nevertheless I think it is about time we consider what our ultimate ambitions are. Essentially, this comes down to, do we want to send people into space or not? If all we want to do is to potter around on our own planet, then there is no need to do anything…

Reasons Why You Must Go For Best Self Publishing Services

I was talking with a writer friend recently, and we got right into a discussion on conventional publishing vs. self-publishing. She’s been querying representatives like crazy. I’ve been doing self-publishing prep like crazy. She was surprised to find out I didn’t even bother attempting to get an agent or publishing contract that is conventional.…

Welcome to the Digital World of Nick Burton.

I’ll bet the first question you asked yourself was who the Hell is Nick Burton ? I don’t blame you and it’s not a bad question all things considered.

You see not so very long ago I was nothing more than a shadow in the imagination of an obscure Scottish author called Merlin Fraser, a faint voice in his head that wouldn’t shut up. I had a story to tell and no other way to tell it than to trick him into thinking the whole thing was his idea and getting him to write it down and get it…
