5. There's only one person who's opinion of my work I value...
Me.

Please stand back; do not crowd my ego.

12. And in the face of that....
Sanjaya (or however the hell you spell it) has a book deal. And I think I heard that that Spears woman has one too.

Not that I'm paying any attention, mind you.

14. Congratulations!
Getting rejected means you're submitting stuff! And collecting rejections means you're submitting lots of stuff.

You'll start getting acceptance letters soon. :hug:

21. Rejection letters mean you're that much closer to getting published
Publishing your work is some talent, lots of persistence, and even more good luck.

You can DO this! :hug:

p.s. I got a rejection letter this week myself... I'll keep going till I meet my goal!

27. Good for you!
Before you know it, you'll be too busy with readings and book-signings to bother with the daily poem thread. And I'll be able to say, "I knew him when..." :)
