when a rejection isn’t a rejection.

Okay, so it’s really an actual rejection. The magazine will not be publishing my story. But I can milk a little satisfaction out of this, can’t I?

I sent one of my Fathers and Sons stories, “Father’s Day,” to a magazine that had called for pieces that addressed catharsis in some way. Two months passed. Then I received a very nice rejection letter from the editor. She said that she really liked the 3,900 word story I’d sent but that she would have to decline it because in the two months since she made the call, she had changed her guidelines, limiting the pieces she would accept to no more than 1,500 words.

Well, darn!
