I must be really good at this. It's only the 31st March and I already have  three papers rejected this year! Maybe I'm taking too seriously the mantra of Silicon Valley "Fail Fast, Fail often".

This doesn't worry me very much. I know the three papers are good, interesting work. Maybe I need to explain myself a little better, maybe I need some more time to check the literature , maybe I need to talk about it more, to see what is it that people don't understand. I can do it, I do some of my best work when people don't believe what I'm saying.

Seriously this is not as bad as having rejected 21 other groups of people. This was news to me, in such large numbers. And I don't like it at all.

(I also had three papers already accepted this year, so maybe I shouldn't complaint!)
