Sigh. As long-time readers know, I show solidarity with Singles, who face a lot of rejection ("It's not you; it's me"), by sharing my rejection letters.
I just got a rejection letter.
As rejection letters go, it was really a nice one. In fact, it could be summed up as, "It's not your story; it's our form of media, and I'm sure it'll be snapped up soon!" The editor said she really enjoyed it, and since she is an amazingly talented writer, I felt rather pleased.
The rejection part still made me sigh, though. Ay, me. That bit's never easy.
Off I go to look in the British Writer's Guide. The great law of writing is that you never, ever give up. If you give up, you never get paid.
Update (Feb 2): I'm sending out two submissions today.
