About seven months ago I sent of a story for Enchanted Conversation’s “Krampus” anthology. And at long last I opened my email to find….a rejection.
The best kind, too. The kind that starts with “Thank you for your story.” That alone is the only thing you need to see to tell you that you haven’t made the cut. Honestly these don’t depress me so much anymore. Writing is very much a hit-and-miss game. Sooner or later you get more wins than losses. I’m a firm believer in that.
I’ve just written my first assignment for Play Writing: a short play I call “The Snowflake Collector.” No idea what I’m gonna do with it. We’ll see how its received in class.
