Rejection

So, I got my first rejection letter today. Feeling a little down about it, considering that they didn’t have the guts to send me a personal letter, just an email form letter that they send to everyone. Sigh. Oh, well. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.

 

This is what it says:

 

Dear Author:

 

Thanks so much for letting us take a look at your materials and please forgive us for responding with a form letter.  The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.

 

Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time.  We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider your materials.

 

Sincerely,

 

THE AGENCY THAT DOESN’T WANT YOU… (I made the name up myself. Just in case.)

 

Nice, huh?

 

Signed,

The (NEVER GONNA BE AT THIS RATE) Fiction Writer

 

P.S. The picture is how I feel.
