I am a fan of projects which are completed quickly and produce big results. Today I learned I appreciate a rejection which works the same way.
Tin House rejected a story I sent them about a month and a half ago which I think is pretty darn quick especially for a magazine that big and fancy. So there's the fast and big part.
I don't mind so much though. This way I can't delude myself that they passed it among themselves before rejecting it. I don't feel led on.
Unlike Fence who hasn't responded to a submission I made just shy of a year ago. That was 2007, people. 2007. This blog wasn't even born yet.
Time to catch up on that old work load.
