I did it, y’all! I got rejected by Start It Up!
I just got a *super-nice* rejection from Start It Up, and I could not be more psyched. Why? Because they added me as a writer, anyway.
They explained that the piece was well-written, but that it just wasn’t right for them. They had run something similar a few weeks before, and it hadn’t really found its audience in that publication. But they liked what I wrote and invited me to submit more in the future. WIN!
Plus, I submitted the article to The Writing Cooperative, and they’re running it. I think it’ll definitely find the right audience there. So that’s my awesome rejection story. Do you have one, too? I’d love to hear it!
