About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

A Positive Rejection

I scheduled this post for this morning only to find when i checked that it was empty, so I'm trying again!


A Positive Rejection by Madeleine Maddocks

Sent to a magazine
By way of competition.
My short story, a piece of fiction.

My fingers crossed, as my toes were too,
And my breath was bated
As I waited and waited.

When the email arrived
It made quite clear
They liked my story, which was fantastic to hear

Though it failed to fit their particular theme,
They seemed keen to see
more of my prose, to them from me.

Have you had positive rejections?
