Rejection Letter #51

bya Gabrielle at 6:56 PM

A few things about this rejection hailing from Zoetrope: All-Story.

1. They were very fast in responding to me. I sent this out on September 8th, and I got the rejection today, September 26th.  That’s 18 days, folks! So, if nothing else, Zoetrope, thank you for not making me wait a year for how you felt about my little story.

2. They totally got my name wrong. People often mispronounce it or will put an A at the end like they did, but rarely do they mess up when writing it. I’m thinking of changing my name to Gabriella to appease all parties. At least they didn’t write Abagail. For some reason, I get that a lot.  I figure I have an evil twin somewhere. Still looking for her.  If you spy her out in the world, please let me know. :)

3. Only 49 more rejections until I get to have my rejection party!

Rejection Letter #50

bya Gabrielle at 12:38 PM

I found out about this rejection a day before the email went out because I signed into their system and saw that it was complete. And the email that was sent wasn’t really a rejection. It was more like – “Hey, these guys won, but not you, thanks for playing!” I didn’t even get an honorable mention. Sad face. I’m kinda mad that I took the chance and paid the $20 to enter.  I typically don’t pay any reading fees, but Glimmer Train is legit, and hell, I had to try. I do believe in my story, so that’s why I did it, but I think I’ll not be paying anyone else to read it, regardless of the possible amount I could win in addition to getting published.

But so I don’t look like a sore loser – congratulations to the other guys and gals!
