I received a form slip-of-paper rejection from the Iowa Review in an extremely timely manner and a form-email rejection from Third Coast.
Acceptances have been slow lately. I will work harder. I think my writing is in a weird spot right now - maybe a "things are happening to the work itself, but haven't actually happened" sort of state, like adolescence. At least I'm hoping so.
As Samuel Johnson said: "There is nothing uglier than that on the verge of beauty." I'm hoping things improve.
