Needle punched me in the gut again, kindly. A nice couple paragraphs on why they weren’t going to take this piece. To sum up: the piece wasn’t developed enough. I shall persist. I am persisting. I sent them another story this morning.
The Other Room liked the writing, but felt the story (an experimental piece) was a little too loosely tethered. To what, I’d like to know.
My latest Fantasy rejection was worded slightly differently, slightly more encouragingly than the last few! A higher tiered rejection. I’m taking it as progress.
Ditto from Bellevue Literary Review. The Literary Rejection Wiki tells me so.
Glimmer Train, however, sent me the same old, same old rejection.
New Plains Review took 198 days to decide not to use my material.
Nano appreciates the chance &c.
