I dislike my work being rejected. Loathe it. Who doesn’t? But being accepted after several rejections is a faith-building experience. I keep on going, then. It gives me a reason to keep on going. Why not? An acceptance of a piece keeps the ball rolling. Why stop? Only when my work is being totally outright rejected. When I get an acceptance, it will build confidence to submit the next one. It is like the tennis player scoring a game and goes ahead three games to two. There is a motivating reason to win the next game.
