THE TWELVE FORM REJECTIONS
(inspired by The Twelve Days of Christmas)
In my ninth form rejection, the letter said to me:
we're so glad you thought of our house,
we're proud of ev'ry book we publish,
see Writer's Market for our guidelines,
due to the number of submissions,
we can't give personal suggestions,
though we strive for quick responses,
after careful consideration,
good luck in the future,
but this story doesn't fit our current needs.
Tomorrow...form rejection number ten.
