My first rejection slip!

I got a response today from F&SF on "Owl, Cat, Cigarette". It could be a form letter, but the responder (John Joseph Adams, Assistant Editor) did say "This short-short just didn't work for me, I'm afraid." So it apparently has a small personalized touch.

I also have to give F&SF major kudos with the extremely fast response. I mailed (yes, mailed) the story on May 21. That's a response in 12 days. Very impressive.

I'm quite fine with the "no". I wasn't quite sure if "Owl" was a F&SF story or not, but thought I'd give it a shot. On Monday it will go off to Flashpoint (as recommended by Mary Rosenblum). Time to find the address and guidelines.

My first rejection slip! Am I a writer now?
