The Loving Embrace of Rejection

Dear David,

Thank you for your interest in any scientific journal/magazine/radio show/TV show.

I’m sorry to let you know we can’t offer you an internship this summer.

Best of luck in your future endeavors,

Some Editor

That is an almost verbatim cut-and-paste from some emails I have received recently.

I am averaging at one rejection a day, which just does wonders for the ol’ ego.

I have an intriguing interview on Thursday, and a few possibilities that are percolating on the back burner.

We shall see … But damn, I hope I get something soon.
