Getting Published: Surviving Repeated Rejection

If you have written an article and submitted it to numerous law reviews, you have received numerous rejection letters. If you use Expresso and Scholastica, you will determine that many of your correspondents never even read your piece.

Repeated rejection can be depressing. In this article on Lithub, you get unusual advice:

I asked her [a successful writer friend] what her secret was, and she said something that would change my professional life as a writer: “Collect rejections. Set rejection goals. I know someone who shoots for one hundred rejections in a year, because if you work that hard to get so many rejections, you’re sure to get a few acceptances, too.”

An interesting article. You can access it here.
