Hi Liam, I understand your frustration, we put a lot of energy and passion in our works and a rejection “hurts” both on a professional and personal level.
Personally, after a lot of rejections , I developed a strategy: when I receive the rejection I read the explanations of the reviewer and I don’t do anything ( meaning that I don’t rush to compare my work with the ones in the market place ), I just let a day pass. The day after I’m way more cool and I can see the reasons of the reviewer objectively.
In your case I don’t find the mail of the reviewer harsh at all, I think it is straight to the point and also very well detailed, I wish all the rejections I received were like this.
Thanks for the tips – very helpful for a new author
Hello, I’m planning of producing a few Presentation Templates to see how the market responds so I’m “studying” a bit the ones that are now in the market ( especially the most successful ) and I noticed something that doesn’t make so much sense to me. I’d like to have your feedback on this because maybe I’m missing something here.
Almost all the Presentation Templates in the market have forward and back buttons in the footer and I don’t see a real value in this beside the fact that it could be a nice graphic element to play with.
I mean, for moving from one slide to the other you can use the Navigator or the Arrows in the keyboard; if you are “playing” the presentation the mouse does not even work plus you can use a remote to skip through the slides and if you print the presentation than the forward and back buttons don’t make any sense.
So, my doubt is, why everyone use them ?
that was quick and easy indeed
