Back from Princeton

I was in Princeton for a chorus seminar for work. It was pretty cool...

Okay, a comment in Monday's posting led me to thinking: Do we associate rejection letters with being rejected? My poster says we shouldn't , as it can lead to different thought, and I agree.

Although they don't make me feel bad or rejected, I think many of us do. How do some of you cope with them?

I've not attempted juried shows yet to know...but for the next month I have rented a studio to prepare 2 works for juried shows...so I'll have to remember to answer this question at the end of the year...but I agree with you on the premise.

I haven't entered any yet, either. I am preparing to take photos to enter in my first juried show, so I'll have to also get back to you on rejection letters if I'm rejected. I really REALLY want to get in so that I can have all the notes from the judges though (good and bad). I also have a children's book manuscript prepared to send in to a publisher; I'm thinking that's the more likely source of a future rejection letter.

by not entering? No, seriously, the times I've been rejected I've put the letter aside and said 'their loss', but then again maybe I've never entered anything that meant THAT MUCH to me, which may bring me full circle!
