Rejection: It's good for you

Ever heard about "The Chinese Rejection"? According to urban legend, it's that rejection letter that essentially says a piece of writing is 'too good' to be published. I first read about it from Bookninja where he refers to an article by The National Post's Robert Fulford. The piece is an interesting read. In it, Fulford muses on the importance of rejection in a writer's career. Personally, I keep all my rejection letters in an envelope and tell myself that the works that didn't get accepted just haven't found their home yet. Perseverance is key. Some writers keep their rejection slips, others burn them. If you're a writer or an artist, what do you do with them?

Read Whatever rejects us only makes us stronger.
