Right?! I’m not taking it personally. But is it so much to ask that rejection letters either be kind or have at least one typo in them so you can feel smug about noticing the typo?

I probably shouldn’t admit this... but I looked up their form letter rejections and mine is... truncated. I swear I followed the guidelines! 😳I’m just gonna chalk this one up to 2020 being... 2020.

I used to get tipsy and make bad decisions. Now I just get tipsy and donate to political campaigns and write letters encouraging people to vote.

Being able to do this sets my whole trajectory for the day—creatively and otherwise. It doesn’t always work out the way I want, but it’s so worthwhile when it does!
