Compliments are nice, an acceptance would be better

It’s been one of those weeks in writing. I received compliments on my submissions and told they had reached the final round only to get rejected after all. Well, pooh. Yes, it happens. And the compliments were very nice. One was on a short short that I really liked. In fact, I have a fondness for it that doesn’t always happen in writing. I was nice to hear the editors thought it was lovely, but a check would have been better. 🙂

It’s nice to know that after all these years, I’m not getting rejected immediately. And the down swings are usually followed by some good news in writing (at least I hope that pattern continues!). Though sometimes, I would prefer to get a standard rejection than to be told I was close, but no cigar.

Anyway, this is what it is like to be a writer.
