Promoting Interdisciplinary Creativity in Steampunk Worldwide
I just got my second rejection letter for "The Goblinfolk" and Old Gnarlytoes" as well as some constructive criticism. Am I despondent over this? HELL NO! Am I motivated? HELL YES!!! :-)
What did they have to say? For future reference
This is the message I was sent:
Dear Mr. Whittington,Thank you for your submission. We have reviewed your poems, and,regretfully, we have decided against using them. Unfortunately, wereceive too many submissions to publish them all. We appreciate yourinterest in our podcast.Cheers!The Drabblecast TeamP.S. - Mind your meter; using such a strong rhythm makes it reallystand out when you flub a beat.
Well, at least it was strong... :-)
That's an excellent sign that you got personalized feedback and not just a form letter. Good for you!
My favorite rejection letter ever told me to quit writing as I had little to no talent. Now, four novels later, I still thank that person in my mind for giving me the motivation to prove them wrong.
Good for you, Kent!
