    Hubbers, what are your experiences with rejection letters from editors and publishers?

      The biggest problem is that they do have the time or energy to give you any feedback. So the whole process is like shooting in the dark. Only twice on the same story did I get a one-line suggestion along with the rejection. In some sense it would be better to get criticism on-line from real readers, than from an editor. Often times I have looked at what is published by some of my targeted magazines and I go "geck".

    I keep mine in a file folder called "Publication Correspondence".
    I don't want to look in my file drawer and see "Rejections".

    This is a good topic - probably be even better in the books section~

    I haven't sent any things into a publisher yet, but intend to. So, hearing about those who have would be exciting. :]
