So, I am well on my way to building another 100 rejections this year.
But can I really count this as a rejection? Only because they were not selected at this time. And the editor’s remarks say it all.
Your work did not lack in craft or depth, and I ask that you not think of this rejection as a judge of your merit as a writer. Instead, I personally ask that you send more of your work in the future.
Until we meet your work again, keep your creative spirit flowing!
Now, I have to go off and seduce my muse.
