I've taken to putting what is surely a rejection letter aside into a pile and then, when I'm in a foul, foul mood, open them all at once. In doing so, I've capitalized on the bad mood and spared myself wasting otherwise servicable evenings of writing.
I hang them on my refrigerator.Does that make me a masochist?
I read them and then put them in a box. I have a huge stack. I used to throw them away.you really put them on your refrigerator? Like all of them? do you read them when you're getting the milk?
Heh, not all of them. I have a special "rejection letter" magnet (which, inexplicably, features a picture of a teenage Bill Clinton in his band uniform). I leave one up until I get a new letter or I just get tired of looking at the one I have. I actually don't get that many letters because the majority of theaters I've sent scripts to in the past year don't bother to send them. That's partly why I relish them; I'm just glad somebody had the politeness to respond!Oh, and I should also send stuff out more often, there's that too....
But then... there is also the emails with fellow artists about *how* and why we do it ...:)
I stuff my rejection letters down me pants!
I keep the encouraging ones and throw the regular ones out immediately. I was shredding them with this litttle $14 handheld paper shredder for a while, but that was when I just got it and I was really into shredding everything I could: junk mail, early drafts, leaflets.
