Believe it or not, the title of today’s post is a positive thing in the writing world. It means someone took the time to write a note about why they rejected your piece. This note was about my new piece called “Hot Lead” about a woman who was being abused. It was flash fiction so very short. The editor said he loved the writing but that it ended predictably. So I asked if I could submit something else or had the deadline passed? (Because I have so many submissions going, I can’t remember that kind of thing). He said they would reopen for submissions September 12, so I have that long to write something new. I have an idea, so we will see how this goes.
The middle one visited her college of second choice, and I think it may be out of the running. She liked the recruiter that toured them around, but she met with the Honor College head and was not impressed with her or with the program. THen she met the band director who basically told her she would have a hard time breaking into the drumline because it was mostly percussion majors who played with the band. She liked the engineering college people also. So I’m not sure what she is going to do.
