rejection. and i must say, for a story that i feel very good about, a story that's exactly the kind of thing i want to write, and that had really great beta responses . . . if this isn't DF's thing, well. i think i'll sit out q1 and mull this over.

commiseration to my fellow rejectees, congrats to the winners, and now i'm off to go bite my nails over three other "any day now" submissions (i've been on a roll this autumn).

Rejected. This one was a particular heart break. Oh, well back to the drawing board. A Rejection means he did not read all the way through, so the problem must be in my opener. wotf027 Happy holidays all.
May we always find ourselves well fed in body, mind and spirit... yet joyfully hungry for more of the adventure.

Big R....but expected. The day of the deadline, I had 8 pieces out for submission and the only other one I had available was a piece of crap.

For there is death in the sound of it, and a glamorous fatality, like silver pennons downrushing at sunset, or a dying fall of horns along the road to Ronceveaux.

The only easy day was yesterday.
