Rejected, thank goodness!
There's a first time for everything, they say.
Well, I had a short story refused today and I am so relieved! After submitting it I read the magazine and if my story had been accepted I would have been ashamed to ask anyone to buy it. I am no expert, but there was only one story out of about a dozen that I didn't consider needed severe editing.
Yes, I know , you don't have to say it - they refused mine so it can't have been that good either, but this is not sour grapes. I really am glad the editor turned me down.
(I hope this smiley is wiping its forehead?)
