Drawing Dead — once again the bridesmaid. Electric Spec made it official — no wedding night for my short story. This poor, lonely story has made it to the altar 4 times, always rejected in the final round consideration.
The rejection: Unfortunately, we do not have room for your story in our upcoming issue. Yours is one of only a few select stories that made it to the “final round” of our decision-making process. All of the editors at Electric Spec enjoyed your story and we encourage you to try us again.
Wow. It seems like they reel you in, give you a faint hope, and then boom! They kick you in the groin!
