The story I submitted has been rejected. Nicely, and with a short personal reply and a “we look forward to seeing more from you,” so, y’know, encouraging.
Next move, of course, is to suck it up and resubmit elsewhere. The first place was a kind of reach-for-the-stars one. The place I’m considering sending it to next is, as well. From there, we’ll see.
And I’m well aware that after two rounds of submissions, I just let “Kate” sit, and have never revised it. I need to do that and get it back out there. I need to finish Lil — poor girl’s been in a state of chased-by-a-demon for a year now. Hill’s got our YA story, and we’re nearly done with that. I might — might — have finally figured out how I want to tell Regina Fowler’s story, too.
I just need to kick myself in the ass and get back to it.
