EVERY WEEK, REJECTION LETTERS FROM MY PAST. BECAUSE THE HURT GOES AWAY AFTER A COUPLE OF DECADES.

THIS WEEK IN REJECTION!

This Week in Rejection!: Writers of the Future

Hey, this one has a date on it, so I can peg my growth as a writer! Based on the timing of it, I would have been a senior in high school, and the story referenced here — “Everything Dies (Atlantic City)” — was a weird sort of fantasy story that incorporated resurrection, reincarnation, and alternate universes. It was inspired very loosely by the lyric “Everything dies, baby, that’s a fact/But maybe everything that dies some day comes back” in the Springsteen song “Atlantic City.”

Very loosely.

Anyway, nothing exciting or anger-inducing or even all that interesting in this week’s letter…except take note of the judges. At least I was being rejected by a truly awesome class of writers!
