I don't know how I feel about this rejection. It says: "Thanks for sending your story to failbetter.com. We're sorry to report that it's not right for the site. We wish you the best of luck placing it elsewhere." Then there's the quotation by Samuel Beckett from whence the name of the journal came: "Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better." (Could be the motto for this blog.) On one hand, I feel like I am just following directions. On the other, I feel like a double loser. Hmm? Perverse.
