Dear Editor;

Thanks ever so much for your dispatch in rejecting my submission.

The frailty of my ego would not bear a protracted period awaiting the definitive fate of my work.

Sharing insight into your process is comforting to me and knowing that; "many talented writers fail in their initial attempts" provides me with great solace.

Your specific request that I never submit to you again; ever, is cause for puzzlement, yet strangely motivating.

Compliantly yours,

Michael J. Solender
