So, I'm crying. An essay that I thought was funny, witty, told a good story, and had a really strong parent/child relationship in it was just very nicely rejected by Brain, Child.
She recommended FamilyFun (which has rejected other stuff of mine) but it's too mainstream for this essay, I think.
I just need a safe place to vent. I was REALLY hoping they'd take this, and now it hurts.
Yes, I know--dust it off and try elsewhere. I know the intellectuals of it--I'm just emotional right now. Can I get some fellow writer hugs?
