Another Rejection That's Making Me Rethink This Whole Writing Thing
More proof that it's not the clarity of my writing, it's other things. A fairy story of mine has been turned down yet again. Here is what the latest rejecting editor said about the story:
"What I liked: Cleanly written. Solid characters and realistic dialogue.
Why I rejected: The story felt too predictable... There's not a huge amount of tension, and the pacing feels off..."
That's at least the second time this story has received the dreaded criticism of "too predictable". It's not the way I write so much as it's what I write.
I might be better off sticking to art. As I've said before, this writing thing is getting me nowhere.
