It’s post-a-rejection-letter Friday!
Apropos of the ridiculous focus on whether or not posting rejection letters is common practice/professional/legal/cuddly/appropriate/blue rather than on the exposure of crude and offensive racist language, I’m officially declaring it Post A Rejection Letter Friday. Here’s mine!
Thanks for this, but I felt it was very overwritten, especially for a first-person story told in the present tense. Perhaps if the character were looking back at these early events, if he had enough distance to both recall the experience and evaluate it, the story would be more interesting. As it stands, by keeping him solidly in the moment, the character has little to do but recite every action he takes, only a few of which are compelling.
Hey, check out all those racial slurs that aren’t in this rejection letter.
