Warrior of My Heart

Strange sentiment, no? "Although we've decided against your work, once upon a time we were interested." I guess the idea is that you'll feel better knowing you weren't just immediately dismissed as a terrible writer out of hand. Is it better or worse knowing that Black Warrior had interest upon opening the envelope, but quickly lost that loving feeling? Also, this is a form rejection, so how sincere could the "it's-not-you-it's-me" excuse really be taken? Not very.

Hmm, Black Warrior doesn't do postal submissions anymore, so this must be old, but it seems a basic tiered response. No thanks, but you were close. Not as nice as a yes please, but better than the generic rejection.

That used to be the standard way of setting off URLs.
