|Three Strikes....Guess I'm "Out"(!)
||[Mar. 8th, 2009|09:43 pm]
I first submitted "Live... or Die Trying" and that was rejected. I could live with that as it is very AU. Second time I submitted "Jealous Much?" and that was rejected. I didn't understand why that was rejected and was pretty miffed for awhile. Like a complete and utter idiot I submitted "Catch Me If You Can". Guess what???? I found out just tonight that it was.... REJECTED! *deer in headlights*
I got the same generated dingbat note everybody else gets. I was really offended on behalf of my beta, Brandedfaithfully. She re-reads chapters sometimes three to four times before they are posted(!) My characterizations of Ron and Hermione are poor. *widens eyes* OK. Hmm...I knew I shouldn't have said that Ron was dressed up as an astronaut and was beating the shit out of Hermione(!) *rolls eyes*
Is there some sort of witches' council club that I am not aware of? Am I supposed to pierce my finger and sign my name in blood to some sort of document? Perhaps there is this secret clandestine society that I need to join in order to post a story there?
I am OVER it! The only comfort I get is looking at who posted here and realizing that- by George-I'm in good company!
Yeah... i got rejected for poor characterization about a month ago. I actually a bit concerned that the what is acceptable ron/hermione characterization is so narrow that few stories get through lately. It seems like more and more I see rose/scorpius or tonk/remus, etc. rather than rno/hermione stories. I really like checkmated as a site, but lately they don't seem to be posting a lot of ron/hermione.
BTW, I read jealous much at SU and really enjoyed it!
I don't think they are a Ron/Hermione site anymore myself. Perhaps if I wrote about another couple they would take that? I dunno'. I was very disappointed to say the least. I think I'll just stick with TQP and SU instead of getting my feelings hurt over and over!
And btw, thank you for your lovely comments about "Jealous Much?"
vanessaweasley here, and I absolutely love everything I've read of yours. They're the rejects, not you!
I didn't know that was you dearest! Thank you for the lovely comments as I am at the end of my rope! You truly are lovely!
Argh, I'm sorry, I know it hurts. If it helps any, I've found that LJ is a lot more welcoming and supportive. Make friends, join fests, comment a lot, and soon you'll be wondering, 'who needs them?'
I woke up this morning a lot calmer! I was so ticked off last night! I am just happy that there are sites like TQP and SU and communities on here like HP_Love. It will take me awhile to get over it but slowly I will!!! Thank you for your kindness as it means a lot!
The only comfort I get is looking at who posted here and realizing that- by George-I'm in good company!
Indeed you are! And nice to see you joining The_HP_Love - I still post there from time to time, as well as at SU, and I shall be happy to have you vetting my scribblings.
I cannot wait to read your work...FIRST!!! *squee* I am ever so jealous of your attention to detail in your brilliant stories!
And...uh...sorry for all my bile in this post. *blushes* I was completely mental at the time but am getting over it.
Again, I look forward to reading your wonderful stories dearest!
