It Sucks to Be Me



Another rejection slip. A very nicely-worded, totally form-letter rejection slip. Why do I even bother?

I gained back another pound.

I'm a sucky writer, no one will ever want to read my crap, and I have no willpower. All things suck.

I still haven't gotten my passport, either. It's now closing up on 15 weeks since I submitted my application.

I missed a deadline last week and didn't submit a review for the first time EVER.

I think I'll go eat worms.

Hugs and all sympathies for all of it -- although I'm sure you're a v. GOOD writer.

Well, I'm a PROLIFIC writer, anyway...

By the time this thing sees print, the year it's set in (2003) will be ancient history...

Dude!

Were my hints I made in the call Friday about how I'd love to see a new draft of one of your stories too subtle.

I like your writing. I've published your writing. I've received favorable comments about your writing from our readers after publishing it. I've received inquiries wondering if you're going to write more for us. I've tried to pass those along. Sorry if I haven't.

Although, yeah, reject letters suck. *Metaphorically looks at own pile of same*

But...but...you got all the stinky stuff out of the way today, so tomorrow can be better. See how smart you are?

True... but in the words of the prophet (Charles Gunn), "There's always more down." *g*

Kathy, you're a good writer, but there are a lot of reasons things can be rejected. For instance, it may not suit the needs of the publishing company at the moment. It may be similar to something else they publish. It may not quite hit their demographic for readers. Ya da ya da ya da.

We loves ya, kid. :-)

Well, of course the brain knows these things. But the heart does do a terrible dip when you see that SASE arrive, knowing inside it says, "Thanks but no thanks."
