Rejection. What a grim and depressing idea. The word itself seems cold and desolate. Whether you are an actor auditioning for a favorite role, or a single guy with a crush on the woman in the next cubical, no one likes to get rejected.
So, you want to get something published? Prepare yourself for a slew of rejections.
Dear Sucky McSukington,
I’m afraid there is no way in hell I can represent your lame-ass novel. What were you thinking? Your query has all the interest of a moldy dish of milk toast, and your main character acts as if he is infested with fleas. I tried to read the chapters you included, but your narrative style made me throw up in my mouth a little.
Please refrain from sending me any of your future efforts, and hang on to that day job for dear life, I beg you.
