So it goes…
got a *very* nice rejection from a major Sci-Fi magazine on some scifaiku along with the comment to the effect of she’d like to see more from me.
I’m trying to not think it’s the usual mantra all rejections get and that it’s an actual encouragement.
which is both encouraging and frustrating – I’ve gotten that a few times from magazines; we like your stuff but we don’t LOVE it enough to buy it.
otoh, it’s better than getting a note saying "GIVE IT UP AND NEVER SUBMIT TO US AGAIN!"
