I'm probably an obsessive nitwit for asking, but I have thick skin, so I'm prepared for the cluegun. I've become an expert at getting rejection letters. (Every blue moon, I get an acceptance letter, which causes me to faint dead away.) As my stack of rejections mount, I've found myself trying to decide which of the two rejection types is better:
Good plot, strong character, not for me rejection, short and sweet--sometimes even handwritten.
Long laborious letter saying, well, yes, we represent this kind of thing, but the writing just didn't grab us. Maybe we'll be interested future projects & best of luck.
I would appreciate any opinions.
More is always better. ALWAYS. Especially when it's full of the things they didn't like. Pay attention to the things you hear more than once.
Personal rejection letters are goldmines. Use them.
