I don’t like rejection, but I like this rejection letter even if it is: a rejection letter. So, thank you, rejection writer, for taking the time to read my submission and respond in such a gratifyingly (for me) thorough manner. You are a unicorn, indeed.
Yours in key phrases such as: she leaps off the page, edgy environment…, distinctive writing, and, …a unique trait that I think readers will latch onto…
Looks like you got some great feedback, delivered with tact, interest, and compassion. It’s a show of remarkable emotional intelligence to write a rejection letter like this one. Kudos to both of you!
Whimsy, I agree. Definitely a rare rejection! So glad they do exist, though.
A rejection like this one is a treasure indeed.
Yes, that’s a ‘nice’ rejection. I recently posted on this topic too – hope you have time to check it out: http://topofthetent.wordpress.com/2013/06/13/building-yourself-up-for-rejection/
Keep going and write on!
Thanks, Safia–same to you. And yes, the adjunct situation is deplorable.
Indeed and unless people start saying no, it will continue.
That’s very encouraging! Not everyone takes the time to write such glowing compliments in a rejection letter, so I take this as a good sign!
Thinking positively. And submitting.
Rejection letters suck. Big time. However, in the world of rejection letters, this is, indeed a thorough and PERSONAL one. Nice. Sorry for the “no” though :-s
Yes, produces conflicting feelings—but carrying on, just carrying on.
