Queen of Rejection— my entry to the Get Published contest

The Idea Description:
Naina was tired of getting rejected. She doesn’t know what it is about her that sends men running, no sprinting, in the opposite direction.
  Sure she doesn’t look like America’s Next TopModel but she’s seen uglier and way more stupid girls get a guy.
  So when she meets Arun who is a friend’s friend, she is self-assured that that attraction is not going to be mutual.
  Will it be any different this time?
What Makes This Story ‘Real’:         
This isn’t a century where women can hide under their duppatta and blush to do the trick. Women have to put just as much effort in wooing as men do.
   Let’s see if Naina breaks out of her shell to get Arun or not.
Extract from the story:
I had to have a certain taste for masochism to be doing this to myself again and again—it was like standing on the rail tracks, waiting for the train that you are sure is come and screaming, “Hey, kill me!”

This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs fromYashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.
