The First Rejection.

I think it says a lot that when I told Facebook I'd received my first rejection letter, all of my non-writer friends were offering their condolences but all of my writer friends were happy for me

I see this as a good thing. When I submitted Raphael to this particular literary magazine, I was fully expecting it to be rejected - and I was okay with that. In fact, I wanted that. I figured it was time to start putting myself out there, time to start attempting to finally get published - but most importantly, it was time to start building my collection of rejection letters. 

This is an important part of every writer's journey, and I'm glad to finally be at this point. 

This is the first time I've ever submitted anything, and I'm hoping that it's going to encourage me to keep doing so. Is it too much to hope that I can submit at least once a month this year? I guess time will tell, won't it? 

Have you ever submitted any of your work for publication? How did it go?
