“Sometimes this happens. It means nothing. So pull the shadows around you like a puff and get back to work. More opportunities scramble forth, trailing their long elegant heels of hot air with alice blue eyes, crinkled as if at the most exquisite moment of a very long opera.” So says alice blue review.
fellowship/publication rejections: 4
My rejections are less “Please don’t even look at our lunch table; can’t you see we’re invisible?” and more “You’re, umm, kinda cool; maybe you can join our clique when you lose the glasses and maybe the bangs; yeah the bangs are the doing the most.” If there is a such thing as good rejection, I suppose this is what it’s supposed to be like. Maybe?
Secret Shame: Doubt and online shopping. (Not necessarily in that order).
Mantra of the Moment: Start where you stand.
