A letter from the editor

Remember way back, when I sent in a children's story to the NZ School Journal?

Well, I got my reply today.

It was a rejection, BUT - she gave me some suggestions on how I can improve my story, and said she'd be happy to have another look at it when I'm done.

So, not a bad result, really. And the bonus is, after a couple of unmotivated months I'm getting back to writing.

Congratulations! That's the best kind of rejection. :) Now get revising and resubmitting that story.

Violet said...

yes ma'm.

Nigel Patel said...

That's wonderful news.
Not about the rejection, which seems only partial but the rest.

Violet said...

nigel: yeah I think so. I spent all evening work on the story and now it's so much better!

Angela said...

Glad you got a responce.
Who knows maybe you will get it published next time

Good one Violet-you are clearly on the right track or they'd just have said thanks but no
