Writing Can Be Murder

I once read a story about a struggling playwright who, when his play was finally launched, plastered the walls of the set with all of the actual rejection letters he’d received for said play.

I’ve been thinking about that as I steadily collect my own set of rejection letters this week. Two for partials on a novel, and one on a short story. It’s only Wednesday morning, so it’s conceivable that I could at least paper a bathroom by the end of the week.



  1. Isn’t it amazing, though, that it takes only one acceptance letter to paper an entire home?!? Good luck, I wish you many.

  2. LOL, too true!

    Thanks for the good wishes!

  3. I think I’d rather Xerox my acceptance letter a thousand times and send it postage due to everyone who rejected me.

  4. LOL, yes and you could scrawl in big red marker


    because I’m sure every letter you’ve gotten says it’s not the “right fit”.
