I’ve decided to start writing literature for children. Actually I decided this some time ago; now I’m acting on it. It’s a side project to my side projects.

Of course, with my attempts at writing, and submitting them to people, comes rejection. I’m rather proud of being rejected, because it means that rather than thinking about doing this, I have done it and am trying.

I decided to spice up my rejection letters to give them a bit more oomph. Perhaps if agencies out there did this, there would be fewer hard feelings?

I believe I may do this for every rejection I receive, as a way to stay inspired and not dwell on rejection. Think positive! Positive with animated, fighting skeletons!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

  1. Fantastic! Although I really had hoped, when reading it, that this is how they sent their rejection letters.

    I wish you the best in our endeavors!

  2. Thanks Brian. I honestly think that many publishing houses and folks who represent artistic types could benefit from rejection letters formatted like this.

    I’m happy to provide my rejection letter formatting services too them.
