Honey, I'm home.
Well, it's been a while since I've posted here. I can't really say why. Maybe because I was thinking of the futility of writing like this everyday, and getting nowhere, much like waking into a closed door, day after day, hoping it will finally open. I suppose what brings me back here is that I love writing, in general.
What really brought me back to my Destructoid blog though, was my rejection. I pitched an article to the Escapist about bad endings, and was told less than 12 hours later, that they were not interested. This is the nature of the business. Either rejection kills you, or you pick yourself up and do it again. What best sums this up is this Niel Gaiman quote, which I will share with you:
"The best reaction to a rejection slip is a sort of wild-eyed madness, an evil grin, and sitting yourself in front of the keyboard muttering "Okay, you bastards. Try rejecting this!" and then writing something so unbelievably brilliant that all other writers will disembowel themselves with their pens upon reading it, because there's nothing left to write"
Let's hope I can write something like that one day.
