Getting your short story rejected doesn't mean you should give up on your publishing aspirations. I made a quick video sharing some of my rejection stories.
I am not a professionally published writer. I earn most of my money through writing but none of that is fiction writing. Sorry for the low-quality of the video. I'm not much of a video producer. I thought this might be a good way to practice making videos.
Lesson: Don't give up on publishing. Keep submitting until the outcome is inevitable.
