Ah, sweet rejection, it never gets old.
I awoke this morning with that annoying reminder that can be so daunting. As Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun. As a writer, it is our job to find those common truths that unite or divide us and express them in fresh and exciting ways.
I loved watching Star Trek and The Twilight Zone over the years because Science Fiction and Fantasy allow the writer to explore issues in a way that the audience might be receptive.
So, I am off to review and edit that story again and hopefully find her a home.
