Well, I’ve had lots of rejections, but this is the first one since Banff. It’s for Five Crates of Dragonroot, which is actually the first chapter of the novel Curse of the Blackswan. This is the same chapter that I submitted to the Banff group and have since edited.

The rejection comment was:

This work is well written but unfortunately didn’t hold my interest enough to warrant acceptance.

Okay, nothing to worry about. I wasn’t really expecting much out of this one. Not that I didn’t HOPE something would happen, but really, this was written as more of a writing exercise than a stand-alone short story. There are no themes, no real arcs…just my main character trying to steal 5 Crates of Dragonroot.
