Whenever I receive a rejection, I try to find out why my work didn't do so well, or I explore the work of the other authors who were successful, in order to find ways to improve on my own work. Critical feedback is vital to ensure you keep learning and improving as a writer. Whether it's from an editor, a writing buddy or a reader, comments about what is NOT working can provide the basis for a re-examination of your work. And then, of course, there's always wine. And chocolate. They're good, too. (less)
