I recently submitted a piece of work to a certain publication that I was and am quite excited about. I was, as you can tell from the heading above, rejected. Now this normally wouldn’t be anything I’d mention here.
Except a certain friend of mine, said some interesting things that got me thinking. I won’t post every rejection, but the idea of public failure being important. That’s something I can actually get behind, especially when it is something I am a) excited about the publication b) impressed by it.
Yesterday I read my rejection and on top of the considerate words and feedback contained in the message itself, the editor provided a link to his publicly posted story notes on all entries.
