Rejection number 197 was the first for a new sci fi action short story, “Flagjacker.”
Another short and sweet dis, it simply read:
Thank you for submitting “Flagjacker” to xxxx Magazine for consideration. Unfortunately, it does not meet our needs at this time.
Oh well. It was a pro market, so such happens. Undeterred, I did a few minor rewrites and I will send it out again next week. Maybe in time to get rejection #200. I hope not.
Keep on writing.
