100 Rejections

June 2, 2004 | Comments Off on 100 Rejections

I love Lowrey McFerrin’s idea that new writers should strive for their first 100 rejections … and that along the way they’ll inevitably have a few pieces accepted, as well. I’ve been writing for a couple of years now, but am just beginning to send stories out, so I have a long ways to go towards my first 100R.

However, in the spirit of revelling in those rejections, I’d like to announce that I’ve just received two: the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine declined to accept my The Naughties Wedding, and Seal Press’ A Matter of Choice was unable to use my essay, A Conversation with Fritjof Capra.

I’m starting a folder for my rejection letters, and dream that one day it will be bulging. I’ll keep you posted.
