If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Oh fairy dust! newest rejection

Any one who becomes really familiar with me as a writer knows I'm constantly receiving those pesky rejection letters, and while I know several other writers who do as well, I like to post mine just to remind myself that I can write about anything, and its another letter added to my list- I'm trying to get 100 of these rejections! 
I don't know what I will do with them when I get 100 I just know I want 100 rejection letters, maybe I'll post a story about all of them on a blogfest? Speaking of blogfest don't forget about DL's Drama blog fest----->Details!

So without further contemplation here is my "oh fairy dust" moment :
 Hello Summer ,

So this wraps up the call for submissions to Popshot's 'This Is Modern Living' issue. A massive thank you to all of you who submitted (sorry if you didn't submit this time and are receiving this email). We received a barrage of incredible poems and in the end had to turn away quite a number of them that were more than good enough to make it in. This is a rather frustrating but necessary part of the selective process.

For this and for the fact that this email can't be delivered in a more personal manner, I can only apologise.

Thanks again for the time and thought taken to submit to us and please continue to submit to future issues. We'll keep you posted.

I have to say you take this with great strides. I don't think I have the same graceful manors you seem to have.

Summer said...

cleverly Inked~~~I have to admit the first couple was hard to take lightly, but then I had to convince myself I'm not a bad writer, and decided these were collection worthy. :)

I love the way you embrace what many (myself included) would see as a negative and make it a positive. 100 rejections is an admirable goal - it proves that you have the confidence in yourself that every writer needs. I hope to be able to accept it in such grace when I finally work up the nerve to submit things. Thanks!

Tinkmom~~ it is hard to let go of your own work and submit- but its a freeing feeling as well- to realize you have gotten to that point and are doing something to increase the chances of success. Thank you for commenting.

The more rejections just make the YES so much sweeter :)

Summer said...

Nicole- I agree

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
