So, The Rejectionist is having this uncontest, which I heard about through a very funny post by Simon C. Larter and I felt inspired.
The idea is that you post an essay (an essay?) on your blog and then put a link in today's comments over at The Rejectionist. You have the chance to win a prize that I suspect is as crappy as any of Whirl's crap, crap, crap prizes so that's not really the point. It just looked like fun.
The only snag is, the subject is "What Form Rejection Means to Me." So far I haven't submitted any stories anywhere, except for the one competition where I wasn't even shortlisted, so my experience of form rejections is nil. It's going to be a short essay. Here goes.
What Form Rejection Means to Me
It will mean that I've submitted a story.
That has to be the shortest essay ever.
