I appreciate it. The rejection doesn't sting nearly so much as finding out on Monday that the only reason I was still 'alive', when so many had already been given the bad news, was that MCW was waiting to receive my electronic file from the grad admissions office. After that, getting turned down just seemed like a matter of time.
I've spent the morning revising my portfolio story, which I'd neglected to do out of fear that I'd find it perfectly rejectable. Eh, it is and it isn't. I love what's at its core but can see some of the lifeless prose that might well do me in. Anyway, the point is that I can't let this process stop me from working on a piece that at this point has more heart than polish. So that crap is over.
