Missed by "This" Much: a Good Rejection

rejectionYeah, like any rejection is good.

Still, a favorite story of mine that I know is weird and will be hard to place came back rejected yesterday. The language on the reject was the standard stuff, but the editors added, "PS A difficult decision."

I'm very happy for the PS. I think the story is a good one. I just have to find the right editor on the right day.

A student of mine said to me the other day, "Do you remember when you used to receive rejections?"  Right.  Like there will be a time when everything I write is exactly perfect for every market in every instance.

What really gets heart-breaking is when you get such rejections from every possible market.
