  1. Hi Beck,

    How's your pitching going? Any luck? I just got a rejection from another mag - not fun.

    So my question for you is how do you deal with rejection? (Or do you not get it much?)

  2. My pitching is going mazingly, amazingly badly at the moment! Believe me, I'm getting rejection emails left, right and centre. Or silence. Not sure what's worse.

    I got another rejection at midday today and I'd only sent the pitch this morning! I'm not sure whether editors are just grumpy right now, there's less writing gigs available or my pitching's turned to crap. Or all three. Whichever is the case, I'm desperate for something, *anything* to go right!

    Generally, my way of dealing with rejection is just to keep sending out pitches and jumping on opportunities. I know from my addiction to entering competitions that the more you enter, the more you win. The same principle should apply to pitching. It is tough though when you go through a bad patch. But if you don't keep sending out pitches, you're guaranteeing you won't get any accepted. Keep getting back on the horse and something will turn up.

    Wishing you better luck than mine lately!
