I know the cliché well: “You only fail if you refuse to try.” While I don’t doubt the truth of those words, it’s of little comfort when I am staring at another submission I was sure I had “just right” only to see it returned—again. Red ink loudly announces, “You missed the mark—AGAIN!” I lift my eyes to Heaven and begin to pray. I stop, suddenly doubting my ability to choose the right words. My eyes fall to an envelope on my desk I hadn’t noticed before, a SASE I didn’t remember sending. The postmark reads, “Glory.” Sliding my finger under the flap, I tear it open and unfold the parchment-colored paper inside.
