Oh yes. I’m excited about it. Not only is this my first try at submitting something in over 5 years, the letdown of not getting it published wasn’t bad.
That’s right. It wasn’t bad. It didn’t sting or hurt my delicate sensibilities. In fact, the words sent by the editor were encouraging to me. I mean, who wouldn’t be encouraged by the phrase “Please feel free to send something else along”.
Well I’m off to try submitting this story to another publisher…. and we’ll see what happens, right?
