There was a response waiting for me this morning regarding the 55 word story I submitted. It was a very polite no thank you, and that's all right. I wrote the story in 15 minutes, it wasn't astounding, and I only submitted it as an oh, what the hell kind of thing.

Would it have been great to have gotten it accepted? Sure, but really, it's hardly the best piece, and it was the act of submitting not the acceptance of a submission that I was practicing.

They can't say yes if you don't ask.
