No Stairway? Denied!

Yes, I watched Wayne's World. I liked it, too. And the sequel. So there.

TT: I don't actually get the joke referenced in the title. I know a song called "Stairway to Heaven" exists. I suspect from context it contains some kind of guitar riff all guitarists play or try to play and the store owner doesn't want to hear it anymore. Since I had to deduce this from the movie, I pretty much missed the humor boat. However, I recognize many people found it funny, so I use it.

This is my way of announcing Elementals will not be a PYP publication by that or any other title. I received word last night.

I am grateful I got my rejection before the "finalists" appeared on the PYP FB page.

Here's my reaction:

1) I love that rejections are now, for the most part, free. Back in the old days (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I submitted to Tor for the first time), you paid the cost of paper and postage and return postage to get that "no thanks" pink slip. Since I keep my email for FV posts, getting this rejection technically cost me nothing. Yea!

2) I can continue with NAF for the foreseeable future (until they sack me). I get the boot when I get published.  Actually, I get moved to the Granny Flat, but it's kinda the same thing.

See? Bright side to everything.

Now, I'll take my cue from that brilliant philosopher Forrest Gump and end with "that's all I have to say about that."
