Just Didn't Grab

Writer Jim avoided all the common problems from the slush pile, according to this annoying form check-off letter. His piece was nicely written with a strong distinct voice with intriguing characters! But it just didn't grab the editor. Hmm? What was the editor expecting? For the story to rise off the page and pinch his ass?  Just wondering.

It's like some of the other multiple choice rejections, but I don't think I've posted exactly this one before. Who knows, though. They all start to blur, and I've been wrong before.

I used to tell my wife, "Sometimes I think I'm just spending my time entertaining editors for free."
