This must sound impossible -- but until my seventh rejection, I never ven got a "Dear Author" rejection. I am no longer deprived, however, as one from Front Street came in the mail! Hurray for the form letter! :hooray:

I hate those "Dear Author" rejections. :Soapbox:

Here's hoping things look up for you soon!

Congrats, you've now got proof you've submitted your work! Consider it your official anointment into the ranks of the Aspiring Writer. :Trophy:

Also, think of it this way: You were called "author." Yessssss!

I once got a rubber stamped rejection on my query:

"Author: Not for us at this time!"

I thought that was about as dehumanizing as was possible. Think of the man-hours that rubber stamp must have saved, eh?

I got my first rejection today and it was a dear author!
