No West, Young Man

Well, I heard back from Clarion West. Two months ago, I applied to the 2008 writing program in Seattle, and tonight I got their answer:
We are sorry to let you know that you were not selected for this year's class. We had a record number of applicants, and because the workshop can hold only eighteen students we could not find room for all of the promising writers.
So that's a signal. Not what I was hoping for, but hey, if I want to be a writer, I'd better get used to rejection, right? And plenty of it!

Still waiting to hear from Clarion (the original, in San Diego). Not looking good for our hero...
