Why authors like rejections

Yes, it really is true that writers enjoy receiving a rejection.  Okay, kind of true.  A rejection is not as good as an acceptance, clearly, but it is certainly preferable to the usual alternative, which is being completely, entirely and categorically ignored. Most writers, if they’ve stuck around long enough to send out several of…
