Day 188 – Rejected!
Driftwood Press rejected my short story and I’m super excited about it! They actually responded! Sure, it’s a form rejection, but it’s my FIRST rejection letter! It was literally the first thing I read at 6 a. m. this morning and it strangely set a positive tone for the day, like having been rejected brought me on tiny step closer to publication somehow. It felt like progress and encouragement to buckle down and try again. See below for the entire letter.
