Rejection: Nobody Gives a Crap About Compsagnathus

Leave a comment

This is certainly my month! This rejection was actually not a bad one, though. They had this to say:

“While an interesting subject and some decent characterization, the point of this story fails to meet our expectations. What are you speculating on by writing this story? Work at making this a stronger focus in the story rather than the interplay between a funder and a researcher.”

Not bad, but not necessarily good, and they said to keep them in mind for future submissions. I intend to, actually. Not sure what I will send, though. In any case, this piece is off somewhere else!
