The Savvy Writer’s Guide to Simultaneous Submissions

"Getting discouraged about rejections would be like playing basketball and getting upset about every missed jump shot. Okay, it doesn’t feel great. But the clock’s still running so you’ve got to keep your head in the game. If your work has been rejected from your top thirty dream journals, don’t sweat it. There are hundreds upon hundreds of other journals for your work. And guess what? Getting published, no matter how as-yet-unknown the journal, enlivens your little writer’s heart, gives you the stamina to keep going, and gives your resume a boost. Plus you never know how big-time that journal will one day become, who will read that journal and notice your work, or what will become of the connection you make with an editor. So after you get rejected by your first round of submissions, keep going!"

Do just once what others say you can't do, and you will never pay attention to their limitations again." James R. Cook
