I've been submitting to festivals, and have started to hear back. I got into a local animation showcase, which is great, but then I got a very pleasant rejection letter from Ottawa. Its only one rejection, but it was an important one upon which I had pinned a lot of hope. Dealing with the reality of it this evening has left me feeling four year's worth of tired. I know it is petty to whine over one rejection, but I think I'll get over it faster if I don't try to hide my disillusionment behind pinups and bunnies. Tomorrow, back to work.
