Quick Hit

Making Light on the slush pile and rejections. If you've ever wondered about the process, go here read the post and the comments.

This is an oldie but a goodie and it's the post that inspired me to write on rejectomancy. I just stumbled on it last night and have been very impressed by the content, the humor, and the good advice.

... That post. Could that be the post with the Towers of Slush pictures?

And also, where's the link? :)

(Ah, I'm Fate. I thought it was kind of weird posting on here using an alias. Unless it's not. :>)

Oops, my bad. Thanks. Fixed now.

What struck me most about the supposed "horrible" rejection letters is that I would have been thrilled to get some of them. Handwritten? "hey, your story's great, we're sure it'll sell somewhere, but we're too small to do it justice"? Sheesh. We should all be so lucky.
