whaaaaat

thank you for submitting your story to a really well-known journal. while we won't be publishing this story, our editors and staff readers rated it highly, and it was among our top 10 stories out of more than 500 submissions (which, i hope, explains our delay in responding to you). this type of metafiction is difficult to pull off, and you made of its high concept a story both funny and moving.

i'm sure you'll have luck placing this story elsewhere, and i'd like to encourage you to submit to really well-known journal again.

sincerely,
[signed by the actual dude]
