Those Rejections


This response to a submitted manuscript harvested from Harper's magazine, while it's from the journal, Environmental Microbiology, could just as well be to a writer of fiction or creative non-fiction. 

The biggest problem with this manuscript, which has nearly sucked the will to live out of me, is the terrible writing style.

Feel better about those bland rejection slips now?

  1. As to writing style, the sentence simply does not flow well. Perhaps the reading affected the writer more than he knew.
