A Small Measure of Success

One of my stories received a personalized rejection letter, along with encouragement that I send more. While it isn’t a sale, it is some progress beyond the typical form letter rejection. While I may not be popping any champagne corks tonight, I am at least a bit encouraged to keep my nose to the sans-serif grindstone. It is good to know that my crowning achievement as a writer was not at the tender age of sixteen (the last time I got a personalized rejection letter). It also serves as the motivation I need to get my ass back in gear, I have been seriously slacking in the writing department for the last week or so (curse you Mad Men!)
