Precocious Rejected

Now, you might think it's strange to be happy about a rejection. Thing is, I had convinced myself that I'd forgotten to send an SASE with this manuscript. I thought I'd broken the unbreakable rule of submitting writer's etiquette and blown my chances. I imagined my story crumpled up and lying in some admin girl's bin.

By contrast, a rejection letter is wonderful. It means I didn't waste all those hours in front of the PC. And I could surmise, because the rejection took nearly three months to arrive, that I was in a short list (I've been in one before). On the other hand, Val McDermid was the guest editor, and being a sought after author she might have struggled to fulfill her task and it all took a bit longer. Who knows?

I think I might go looking for other, suitable magazines that might offer "Precocious" a home.
