FFGirl, you gotta do this! Even though you havn’t really posted any work on masterpiece, even from just your comments I can see you’ve got talent. Major talent.
But yea, I can totally relate. Rejection is mortifying. I had it happen to me so many times, I might just be immune by now.
Just today I got a short story idea for the Ami contest and my first thought was- ‘that’s a crazy idea-if you send in that story, make sure it gets published with a pen name’ In fact, I prefer publishing with a pen name for that reason…but maybe that’s why there’s such a lack of good quality Jewish fiction- we are so quick to dismiss our ideas, they never make it past the first draft, if even to that.
We’re cheering you on FFgirl!
