thunderbolts and lightning

Well, Annalemma rejected the piece I sent them. C'est la vie. But their rejection was nicer and honestly more flattering than a lot of the acceptances I've gotten.

Thanks for submitting [title withheld] to us. I'm going to respectfully pass on this piece. You got a great voice here but the story isn't firing on that emotional level for me. However, I meant what I said about your voice, some truly brilliant things happening there. I'd like to invite you to submit again in the future.

It's hard to even be disappointed after hearing something like that. I think I will submit again once I've written something better.
