Three rejections on one day! Oh, agony agony agony agony agony!

But there is a thin silver lining. One of the rejections came with a note saying the editors want to see more stories from me. And that their current acceptance rate is around 4%. So that's something.

As soon as I know what it is, I'll let you know.

The moral of the story is - when you send out a bunch of stories on the same day, your rejections tend to come back in bundles as well. So if one rejection sends you careening down Depression Alley with the lights off and no brakes, you might want to consider spacing your stories out.

By the way, the Christian publishing ads that have been appearing down there on the right side of the page are curious. It seems that if a blog post says something like "God wants us to be happy," even if that is in reference to drinking beer, the Google computers in their infinite wisdom think you must be into Christian Revenge Fantasy like the Left Behind novels.
