Rejections ….

May 10, 2009

After multiple acceptances, I’ve had two pieces rejected this week.

I had high hopes for both stories. One story passed the first editorial board reading but didn’t quite make it through the full process.

What’s more disheartening than the rejection itself, I think, is the length of time it takes for some of them to occur. Which is worse, a quick rejection, or one that happens after several months?

I recognize how difficult it is for editors and assistants to plod through the hundreds of submissions they receive, but it doesn’t make it any easier to accept that both rejections took over 3 months to happen.

I’m awaiting word on one other piece that has been at one market for over 3 months as well.

Curses.  Back to the market search!
