The editor of Sci Fi Short Story Magazine found my first story to be a non-fit for his magazine although he made sure to stress that the rejection was neither a criticism of the actual writing of the piece nor a discouragement against future submissions. I took him at his word and submitted another story entitled, "No More Goodbyes."
It was accepted.
The editor wrote, "It gripped me from the beginning."
What a nice way to ring in Daylight Savings Time~
