My first rejection letter…

So I finally heard backfrom PopMatters re: the column proposal – after a gentle nudge sent earlier this week. My idea is too unfocussed for their needs, they said. And that’s all they said, leading me to believe there’s a whole lot more they could’ve said.

Well…hey, it’s an essential experience on every aspiring writer’s resume, right? Right. Besides, I’d rather concentrate on fiction just now anyway.

…Sigh.

    Well said! And you should see some of my rejection letters, right up until the point where I actually got published (and some afterward)! Don’t give up!
