Ground Control to Central Coast Getaway Piece

I guess the strain of ignoring me got to be too much for a certain Long Island-based publication. It took almost nine months, but finally their reserve of indifference ran dry, and they were forced to resort to outright rejection. Today I got back from them not one, not two, but five pieces, the earliest dating from March.

That’s a lot of rejection to process in one day, even if it’s all from one editor. But then again, it’s sort of encouraging, in a way. I had assumed that all these pieces had fallen into the black hole of editorial indifference, but in fact, they were just orbiting in a holding pattern around the editor’s desk. It just goes to show, you never know when ET’s gonna phone home.
