Rejection


A famous writer said this to me a long time ago: "The more material you send out the more you'll be rejected and you know what? The pain of rejection lessens."

It does. Seriously. A short 2 hander play I've been trying to get staged for a while now was scheduled to be performed in February. But cutbacks. Now the powers-that-be inform me that they can now only put on 3 plays for the festival rather than 5 and mine didn't make that particular shortlist.

Next.

  1. Sorry you missed out on this one, perhaps there is a greater opportunity, just around the corner.

  2. It's a comfort too to know of so many great works that were rejected, often repeatedly, before finding their way to the public. Often the rejection has more to do with circumstance and contingency than the work itself.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
