Tin Hope

I found this errant rejection slip with the nice scrawling hand-written invitation. I believe this one let me run on the intoxicating fumes of hope for several months. I even had it posted to my bulletin board, which now just plain makes me feel sad for myself. Ultimately, of course, the full-length creative nonfiction book got as rejected as the essay did above. (I found that rejection, too, stuffed away in a file;I'll post it for your enjoyment tomorrow.)

The two best words from an editor, though: SEND IT.
