Rejection: Take It Personally

OK, as a disclaimer, you shouldn't take rejection personally.

But I got a personal rejection letter from one Mrs. Ann VanderMeer of Weird Tales. It reads as follows:

I am so sorry that I held onto this story for so long, especially since I'm going to have to pass on it. Not quite what I'm looking for.  You are welcome to try me again with something else

At this point in my career, to get a personal rejection from someone the likes of Mrs. VanderMeer is as good as gold.


  1. Yeah, that kind of rejection is defeintely nicer to recieve than the sort that goes.

    "Thank you for your submission, unfortunately we've decided to pass this time."

  2. I've gotten quite a few of those, too. haha.
