Incidentally, one such e-mail popped up in the lower righthand corner of my screen while I was typing this blog entry. Out of the corner of my eye I saw the subject line “Re: Your submission….,” and felt a flicker of hope. With an e-mail, you actually have to read the body of the message to see whether it’s an acceptance or a rejection. Of course it was a rejection but hope and possibility lived just a little longer, and their demise was a little less tangible in cyberspace than it is in the form of a SASE. Those SASEs often lie about unopened in my pile of mail until I have the heart to log the rejection in my submissions spreadsheet.
Acceptances Never Arrive in an SASE
