Pre-Emptive Rejection by Peter Marinacci on August 17, 2015 at 12:00 am Chapter: Comics Writers are rarely appreciated. └ Tags: binky, book, twink, writer, writing
What a cheek, but there is one thing that they have overlooked… All those free pancakes, and everyone adores your freshly made pancakes Twink 🙂 Yaaaaay
Their loss is our gain 🙂
Maybe I should send them some of my pancakes with my manuscript.
That’s a great idea Twink 🙂
I hope so!
What sort of chance does that give anyone? Better have some pre-emptive chocolate
Not much of a chance, it seems. Some pre-emptive chocolate is just what I need.
Oh ouch…I heard that can really hurt 🙁
Believe me, it does!
All creators feel there Is a rubber stamp called “REJECTED” with their name on it.
And I think my rubber stamp is huge!
Build you twitter and facebook following and then self publish.
I guess I need to work more on my social media presence.
I’d follow you but that doesn’t mean much because my social proof stinks.
One is a lot better than none!
Get a new publisher
I certainly won’t be working with that one, that’s for sure.
They will be jealous when
your book sells in the millions
of copies 🙂
I’d like to see what they think of my writing then!
They will be worshipping
your greatness and hoping
you will give them a 2nd
chance 🙂 Don’t give them
any free pancakes though 🙂
No, I don’t think they deserve any pancakes they way they treated me.
That is the most
logical answer Deb 🙂 xxx
It certainly is.
Deb is like the Wombie Sage,
she knows everything there is
to know about logic 🙂
Yes, and Deb’s not even all Wombie!
I got a lot of those while hanging out at a bar. 😉
Drown your sorrows!
Ouch, word is on the street.
I need to find another street!
Ouch indeed. Really not good for one’s ego at all.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
No, not at all!
Oh man! That’s pretty rough Twink! I’m sure your autobiography is a page turner!
You don’t know a good publisher, do you?
Might as well. They reject everything.
They certainly reject most of the good stuff!
I think I have had this exact same thing happen when I play pinball and the ball falls right through the middle without me touching anything – ouch! W.C.C.
That is where you need to employ a magnet.
I can relate. Wombats must rate to get a pre-emptive rejection. Often I’m totally ignored.
I don’t know if that’s better or worse.
Quick, write another before they have the chance to reject that one too!
Maybe I should!
Worst pain there is.
That’s for sure.
Hm, how to turn this into lemonade?
Maybe start a rejection collection?
Or maybe I should send the publisher MY rejection!
They will rue the day. Oh yes, they will rue it alright!
They will when my book is a bestseller!
and for the amount of hours they put in writing, they really do deserve to be (appreciated).
I certainly think so!
Beter luck next time!
I think I’ll need it.
Thank you for the new word. I have to google it first 😉
You should try another publisher Twink 😉
I wish it was a better word, like acceptance! Yes, I should try another publisher.
Yeah, ouch. Make that double ouch.
It was an “I have to drown my sorrows in chocolate” kind of moment.
The actual rejection part is a mere formality.
A formality I could do without!
Have a great Friday Peter 🙂
Thank you, Andro. You too!
Ouch! Don’t let one silly publisher stop you from trying, Twink!
No, I won’t. They’ll know what a big mistake they make when my book gets published.
