Drunken Boat sent a really encouraging rejection telling me they were impressed with my submission, but unfortunately did not feel that this particular piece was right for them. I guess I'm supposed to wait three months and then send a note mentioning the encouragement. That sounds about right. It's in my calendar, Drunken Boat.
Diagram sent a slightly less encouraging rejection, though theirs is worded quite kindly. So, thank you, too, Diagram.
Today I'm meeting with a tax lady to talk about all the receipts I saved in 2010. Maybe I will take my winnings and go to Germany for a month and write. This is the goal. By tomorrow there will be a new goal.
