One piece of mine, which almost got published twice (came close, final rounds), has been rejected 18 times. Another piece got rejected once before it got accepted. Another piece got accepted right away, no rejections. So much for the hits and near-hit.
The other pieces that are out there I believe in very strongly, and I hope that they find good homes.
The pieces that have been accepted have not been published but are slated to be published this year. As soon as one is published for good, I'll reset the rejection bar to zero. If I hit 100 rejections before then, I'll stop trying to publish new pieces for a while. That's the deal I've made with myself.
