Opened my email today to find something from Cast of Wonders, a young adult sci-fi / fantasy podcast.
"Another rejection," I thought, and prepared to move it to my folder of "Most cherished rejections."
But it wasn't. Apparently a story I submitted has passed the first stage of their review process.
To quote the tenth Doctor when the Titanic crashed into the TARDIS, "What? What? WHAT?"
No, it isn't an acceptance. Not even close. But it isn't a rejection. And it makes me happy.
