Fill in the blank:

Another day, another _______.
a. rejection
b. dividend payout
c. both

Unfortunately, the answer is “c. both.”

My short story “Coldwater Gold” was rejected for the second time. Ultimately, this isn’t all that bad. The market for short stories is tight and I sent it to two well respected literary magazines. Still, I find this part of the writer’s life disheartening.

On the flip side, I received a $0.1557 dividend per share of TELOZ stock I own. That will pay for about 5 more submissions. Hope springs anew.
