Rejection

I had co-authored a JAMA letter to the editor recently.  Today we received a rejection.  I'm not overly surprised as it was a bit political for JAMA, but I am surprisingly disappointed that it was rejected.   Overall though,  I think I'm just moody and tired.  Trying to balance the month of high holiday while staying on top of my pediatric clerkship and preparing for the upcoming shelf exam has me WAY overwhelmed.  Right about now: being a medical students and being a Jew leaves me sleepy.

Rejection sucks, but unfortunately it's an inherent part of getting published. When I was a graduate student, I can remember seemingly endless runs of rejection letters that left me feeling demoralized. Here's hoping it isn't too long before you get an acceptance and that you find a way to get in at least a bit of extra sleep.
