Ever since I’ve been trying to get my story ‘STROBE’ published, I have received 4 rejection letters from different companies and agents respectively. They are the type where they typically don’t respond back if you don’t fit their criteria, and you know what happened? They all wrote back to me, wishing me luck with finding someone! I would prefer the silence. I’m gonna keep trekking on, but I forgot how it made me feel when different publishing companies deemed my book not good enough. Pretty sad, and a lot angry. It’s like a contradiction to my mind, to be honest.
One of my friends Jason told me that it wasn’t really a rejection letter, but it was more of a missed opportunity. That made me smile, 🙂
And in the naked light I saw, ten thousand people, maybe more! People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening. People writing songs, that voices never share. And no one dare, disturb the sound of silence.
