Writers Beware. You may be suffering from K...

A-Z April challenge. Today is K.

Am I suffering from kalopsia? It’s only got one symptom and I seem to have it. Actually a lot of us writers may be sufferers. You know when you have written a beautiful story and it is
rejected, or your novel is a masterpiece yet no-one wants to buy it? Well, that’s when kalopsia has shown itself. You may have had it before you sent the work off.
Kalopsia – a condition in which things appear more beautiful than they really are.
Of course, those rejections may simply be down to the fact that the editors suffer from the opposite to kalopsia, whose name I don't know but perhaps someone came make one up.

    1. Of course you haven't got it. You're experienced enough to know the good from the bad.
