Failing Writer #3.

Got my 42nd rejection from Glimmertrain (versus zero acceptances). But I’m sending them three new stories this week. If my rejection process was a recipe, it would look like this:

1 teaspoon of an average title

1 cup mediocre structure

1/3 cup semi-effective dialogue

1/3 cup plausible plot

1/3 cup flawed character development

A dash of simile

2 tablespoons of greasy transition

1 sentence of final imagery

1 pinch of less-than-cohesive resolution

Let bake three months while editors decide how many attributes to criticize.

  1. What about a half cup of toasted onamonapia and a tablespoon of zested en medias res.

    (needed to find a way to use the only 2 literary terms I know)
