After seventeen years at sea, I returned to writing last year. This past New Year’s Day, my wife suggested I aim for 100 rejections in 2018, just to prove I was back at it and getting my work “out there.” I thought two things:
1) maybe 100 submissions but not 100 responses – not that quick!
2) I’d be lucky to have one acceptance after that many rejections.
Yesterday I received my 100th rejection and have accumulated 16 acceptances – and it’s only August.
