rejection: Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe

Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe -- AlienSkinMag -- Aug 17 '05 - Oct 30 '05


Dear Kaolin,

We have all read, reviewed, and discussed your submission, Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe, and we have decided to pass on the story.

Although the story offers an interesting premise in the shoppe and the old lady behind the counter, the tale lacked a true plot; and thus, for us fell flat at the end.

We do thank you for considering AlienSkin Magazine for publication, and for allowing us the opportunity to read your work.

Do try us again.

Sincerely,
Katherine A. Patterson
Senior Editor

I don't expect there's much plot you could breathe into it, really. It _doesn't_ have a plot, just an arc--like an old twilight zone tale.

Hey! I got a rejection too! Not from Alien Skin though.

Good luck with them other submissions, though.

Something tells me people want _plots_.

Hmm.

Plot smot - send me that thing.

I'll read it and be all like, "dude, this has no plot - what were you thinking??"

Dude.

Seriously.

My goal with nanowrimo this year, besides getting published, is to better understand plot. :)

I think I'm getting an inkling of it already.

Though I had an inkling before.

Things just don't work out, somehow.

plots are for those that have no imagination and can't come up with a pretense to save their mothers lives ;)

I like "plot smot".

Plot them :)
