Rejection Letter #49

bya Gabrielle at 8:31 PM

Well, that didn’t take long at all.

I manually sent my manuscript to The Paris Review on June 5th, and this past Saturday, June 20th, I received my teeny tiny rejection form.  I thought they would take around five months to get back to me, which is what they say on their website.  I’m glad I don’t have to wait, but a rejection that fast sorta stings! I honestly don’t think they even read the first page. They probably opened up my folder, grabbed my SASE, slipped in their standard rejection form, licked it,  sealed  it and threw it in their outgoing mail stack.  So, the most personal thing I got from them is their spit. Joy.

51 more to go until I get to eat 100 cupcakes!
