Rejection rituals:
First rejection - Pass it off as from a narrow-minded moron.
Second rejection - Put on the family tartan and begin sharpening the Claymore
Third rejection - (Native American side) Go into the backyard and perform a rain dance. (actually pretty effective because it rains - somewhere)
Fourth rejection - build a large, wooden effigy of the reviewer similar to "Burning Man" and set it on fire with the rejected manuscript. (With the manuscript destroyed I can re-write it using better writing skills. I also have the time because there is a burning ban in force and I would be setting in jail with nothing else to do.)

On a serious note, I appreciate the links you continually provide. If there were more writers looking at your posts, competition would improve. Then, maybe, they shouldn't because competition forces me to be a better writer.
