I have just emailed a submission to a fiction magazine. Ahhh! This is much more nerve-wracking than when I submitted my non-fiction article. In that case, I knew I probably wouldn’t get a rejection.
In this case, I probably will get a rejection. This story has been rejected before. But I haven’t given up on my poor little story yet! And besides, I’m already working on another one that may have a better chance.
In the meantime, I need to find a home for my World War One poem that has been hiding in my files for ten years. It’s the only poem I’ve written that possibly has a chance. I don’t write poetry any more, for the very good reason that I’m no good at it.
I must say, it feels quite strange to post without pictures.
What is your best or worst rejection story?
