(So why am I sending out stories instead of eating candy bars?)<br /> <br /> Thank you VERY much for the encouragement. I am going to go revise a story right now (okay, FINISH revising a story&#8230;I already read the revised beginning at Residency!)</p> felicity yes, it means something 2007-07-29T18:17:13+00:00 2007-07-29T18:17:13+00:00 <p>yo, lifesaver, yes this note from the editor means something. i got rejected by a magazine four times before getting a piece accepted, and each time they told me to please try again. keep on keepin&#8217; on. when push comes to shove, it&#8217;s a least a numbers game and eventually you&#8217;ll strike a winning ticket (letter). but there&#8217;s more to it than that, and you and i both know it. you have the energy to send stuff out and there&#8217;s no harm in that. somewhere, somehow, that energy will come back to you in the form of an acceptance letter.<br /> hearts and hugs, katey</p> kateyschultz
