A very odd letter…

Hmm…got a letter back from an editor who likes my story but they don’t have space for it now. While they say they are willing to put my story “at the top of [their] list” should a spot open, they also mention several times that they wish me luck placing my story. (This is neither the story I got the rejection on, nor the story I revised earlier this week, but a third story I’ve had out and about. Yeah, this from someone who generally gave up writing short stories!) So, is the optimist in me going to say, “Cool, I might get in” or is the pessimist going to decide they just don’t want it and they’re being nice? Optimist is winning because they have no reason to be nice.

A very odd letter indeed, and here I was bracing myself for the second rejection of the day.
