I would encourage all writers not to get discouraged. I've spent over eight years working on the world-building of this story and as a writer I'm confident in the story that I've written. As a writer, stories are meant for the readers. They're so many authors who been rejected and yet they never change the entirety of their story because they were confident in the story they have written. Originality is a concept in writing that may seem strange at first, but once your readers get a taste of it your rejections will become nothing more but a dream that never became a reality. Don't let rejection define your reality. Every writer is different, and every writer has a story worth telling.

Seemed like a good fit; at least it was a quick wait. Kind response without any real reason why given.
