WIth all the other craziness of the week, we saw two rejection letters.
Linda Addison over a Space and Time Magazine rejected my Journey Haiku. This is the first rejection email that I know had personalized content on it, as the note broke with the HTML formating of the letter. The form line talked about how they're unable to use it at this time, fair cop. That note said I came close, and she's sure it'll be published. Woohoo! Thanks, Linda. This did add a sparkle to this week.
Now I need to go duotrope another market for it. I think it maybe time for the snail mail submissions.
The next rejection came from John Klima over at Electric Velocipede for Running of the Deer. He says it's not what they're looking for. Also fair cop. Then he says that he would like to see more from me, you know, once they reopen for submission in April. Most certainly, John, you'll be getting more submissions from me.
Tonight, per my devious plot to rule the world, Running of the Deer is off to Ann VanderMeer over at Weird Tales. I hope she likes it as well.
More about the craziness of the week later.
