rejected again, and that’s okay

this morning, i got a rejection back on one of the short stories i sent out, and while that’s a definite bummer, it was a very speedy response, and though the message was very simple, it was followed by an additional non-standard note after the salutation, which read, “Glad to look at more” followed by the editor’s name again.

why yes, i’ll take that, thank you very much!

what’s more, i got an interesting new story idea on the drive home from school this afternoon*, which has me jazzed up to get cracking on to put back in this magazine’s court.

better get to it, then, eh?

* that’s now written on the back of my hand because i didn’t have any paper nearby.
