Using rejections constructively
I had one of those days where two rejections arrived at once. I do try to view every rejection as constructive criticism, even when I think the person might be cracked. If nothing else, this is a reader response and I try to ferret out any clues about what isn’t working. I don’t go crazy with it, but it does help. Still two at the same time is never pleasant.
So, in order to find ways to use these two constructively, I just papier-mached them into Coraline’s head. I feel much, much better now.
