Auld lang syne and some shit, Author-friends! The Rejectionist is one year old this week! HOW THE TIME FLIES. We had a very terrifying moment over the weekend, where we were shouting to Support Team about something or other that displeased us, and realized in the middle of a sentence WE WERE TIRED OF OUR OWN OPINION. THE HORROR. It's because it's too hot for leggings, that's why! A Rejectionist is not a Rejectionist when she is not wearing leggings as pants!
ANYWAY. That's not the point. The point is that, in honor of ourself, we are having a CELEBRATORY REJECTIONIST ANNIVERSARY UNCONTEST. It is just like the other week, when everyone made a post about their writer-space on their blogs, and linked to their post here! So! If you wish to participate in our CELEBRATORY UNCONTEST, here is how! this Friday, FRIDAY JULY 23, we will post on the UNCONTEST ESSAY TOPIC and you, also, will make a post for YOUR blog on the uncontest essay topic, and link to that post in the comments! THE COMMENTS ON FRIDAY THE TWENTY-THIRD NOT THE COMMENTS TODAY! Five-paragraph essay, photo-essay, poignant essay, humorous essay, graphic novel essay, stream-of-consciousness essay, whatever! JUST MAKE US PROUD WE KNOW YOU WILL.
And, in order to share our appreciation--because we would not still be talking about ourself almost daily on the internet, if you delightful people did not keep REWARDING OUR PROFOUND NARCISSISM WITH YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS AND EMAILS, and how can we not ADORE ALL OF YOU!!!!! for SERIOUS!!!!!--in order to share our appreciation, we shall RANDOMLY SELECT FIVE PARTICIPANTS and mail them a SPECIAL MIX CD of songs personally chosen by the Rejectionist to aid in overcoming rejection! We promise they will not ALL be Bon Jovi songs!
SO TO RECAP, for the course of Rejectionists doth ever run long-winded: ON FRIDAY JULY 23 MAKE A POST ON YOUR BLOG AND LINK TO IT IN THE COMMENTS OF THE REJECTIONIST'S POST FOR THAT DAY. WE WILL RANDOMLY SEND FIVE PARTICIPANTS A PRESENT.
Without further ado! YOUR CELEBRATORY ANNIVERSARY UNCONTEST ESSAY TOPIC IS:
"What Form Rejection Means to Me."
And again, thank you, all of you: we never in a million years expected any of the fantastic things that have happened to us because of this blog, or the ridiculously amazingly splendidly WONDROUS people we would meet on the internet and in real life because of this blog, or all of the fiancé/es we would collect because of this blog! We honestly never expected ANYONE to read this blog AT ALL, other than our Support Team, who is contractually obligated to humor our extreme self-absorption! It has been a VERY PLEASING year for us, IN NO SMALL PART BECAUSE OF YOU. Thank you, dear ones, thank you thank you!!!!!!!! Now GET TO WORK.
