Portfollio Packets & Reject Letter

I came home this evening to find yet another reject letter in the mail. I don't take it personal, but it still hurts a little. I counted it up and that makes 12 reject letters over the last 2 years. I have 11 that I have not heard back from, 1 solo show for 2010, the show that I am currently getting ready for the studio visit, and possibly another show for the 2010 season. These are local shows, but I am gaining experience.

I need to get some more packets ready to go out in the mail in the next few weeks.

Chin up! As an artist just starting to "get with it", I'm so impressed that you're sending out your packets at all.

And, if it makes you feel any better regarding rejection ...lol ...I have a funny story for you.

I was a 4.0 student my entire life, in extracurricular, scholarships, blah blah blah. When I had to apply for a "real" job when I was 19, I sent out 45 applications. I think I got two interviews.

Guess what my first job was? Sorting leeches at a lakes area bait shop! (Can you believe you have to fill out an application for that???? hahahaa)

Talk about rejection! lol. Something better came along though, and it will for you too. You'll find your niche, I promise! Right now, just celebrate your upcoming show. *wink*

Don't let it get to you. There are so many artists that it's just a matter of the right time the right place. keep on sending and re-sending!
