Well, this is not to say that im discouraged by the manuscript rejections by the publishers. The fact that annoys me the most is that they reject with a very blunt reply (either email or post). Okay, agreed, that they are rather busy folks. But if they have time to reply, they can surely spare a few seconds to add why. Atleast a line stating if it was because of full publishing schedule or the story was crap. Dont ye think that the writer may doubt his own abilities cause of it?
