Random Observations: Rejections

For short story authors: most editors are not in the general business of providing you with constructive feedback or criticism. Our job is to actually pick the best stories for our readers, and that's it. It is not worth our time or energy to do otherwise, to provide you with detailed rejections. Put simply, we are not your unpaid writing mentors. So, if you want to improve your craft, go to a writing workshop. Go join a writing group. Go read some more. Anything but complaining about how form rejections suck, that you can't learn anything from them. :p
