Ups and Downs and the Dawn Wall

Rejection is a part of a writer’s life. They never feel good, though. Sometimes they really hurt.

And if you put your work out enough, you will get rejections regularly, so often that you will get them while on vacation.

On a recent trip to Yosemite, I got three rejections. But I didn’t care. Look at that. How could I? I had no breath left for crying. Nature remains the best editor.
