How do you handle rejection? Is personal rejection different than professional rejection? If so do you react differently?
In my case it's artistic rejection, and I do not like it. Today I received my very nicely written rejection email from The American Academy in Rome. It went something like this:
I hope you'll take a moment to check them out! I apologize that I'm not able to post any photos from the computer I'm working on at this time.
Thanks for listening to me whine. Sweet dreams.
ps. It occurs to me, now that I am posting this publicly, that for me embarrassment follows rejection. But I'm sharing it anyway. As this is what I've promised this blog is about. Trials and tribulations.
