Lynn Tincher offered an interesting challenge from the Literary Lynnch Pen in her newsletter. I decided to give it a go and emailed my response.

Today my email rejection from Glimmertrain (yeah, well; I like to aim high) was balanced by an email from Lynn saying she'd posted my piece on the site. It's always nice when those negatives get evened out with positives. I hope you'll go on over there and take a look at my tale - all 50 words of it. You could even sign up for the newsletter, and send in your own entry for next week's challenge.

Thanks Lynn. Your timing was perfect.

It's always nice to get that balance. The acceptance/rejection is a roller coaster of emotions for me. :)

Congratulations on the story. That's got to make you feel good, especially with the rejection. You end up with a positive!

Sheila, I didn't see a way to comment over there, so I'm stopping back here to say, cute story! And all in 50 words. Wow.

Glimmer Train is really tough. But nice getting some balancing good news.

I will go over there and check it out! Oh and gosh, I know so many rejected by Glimmertrain *laugh* it's almost an honor to be rejected *haw!* I mean, just being brave enough to submit is something...laugh.

Thanks for all the encouragement. So, do I try Glimmertrain again? Well, probably... I suppose... once or twice a year when they have free competitions...

And I'm trying Lynn Tincher's WordWorm again as well of course.
