Today I received an encouraging rejection from Rhino, but it's okay because earlier in the day I had 3 of those 5 poems accepted by Zafusy. I had already written a withdrawal email to Rhino, and then I had to write them telling them that I had gotten the rejection, and to disregard my previous email.
I wonder if they got the email and thought it was a "You're not breaking up with me! I'm breaking up with you!" kind of letter.
Am I the only one that thinks about work in terms of romantic relationships? Let's hope so.
