Day 241 – Rejection! Rejection!

Rejected again! My short story has been officially rejected by Tin House. This is my second rejection letter for this piece. I’m kinda excited about it despite it being a form rejection. I’ve made a special folder for them in my gmail account so I can keep track of them like how Stephen King kept all his rejection letters tacked to his wall. Thankfully, I saw this video earlier in the week to remind me that rejection is par for the course and nothing personal. Cheers!

Dear Zezelia,

Thank you for sending us “Endship.” Thank you, also, for your patience in waiting to hear back from us. Unfortunately, we must pass at this time. 

Best of luck placing your work elsewhere.
