I got a response about one of my stories today.  REJECTED.  Again.  No big deal.  I wasn't exactly expecting anything else.  It's not like I had my hopes up or anything.  Still waiting to hear back from Realms of Fantasy about the other.

these are the salad days. you never know it when your in it though.....go figure? it takes pain and struggle to create good art and unfortunately.....the best artists are dead long before their work is appreciated.  just the way it is.  although that's more painting and sculpture, not writing, but.......consider it motivation.

keep at it.....and don't give up.

i don't know what style your writing is that your entering, but i think your strength is in personal struggle.....aka....jack kerouac's on the road or henry rollin's get in the van, type of stuff.  a journal of thoughts and personal insight.  maybe try writing some different styles and sending them out...sometimes a classical guitarist realizes his strength is in blues?  just a thought......

I've been thinking that same thing myself.  I might just have to do it.  The medium I usually write in is fantasy.  I could probably incorporate the personal struggle theme into that, but who knows?  Maybe I'll just start writing and see where I end up.
