So, for the first time I had a story accepted and I did not immediately withdraw it from the other places I'd sent it, because I didn't think that I could possibly hear about a story from two magazines while I was gone, so I didn't bring my notebook where I keep track of these things. Yup, in a notebook - not a spreadsheet or a google doc.
So I got an acceptance and then I prayed that whoever else I'd sent the story wouldn't want it for the next week.
And no one did. But Fringe rejected it. So I think I should maybe count that. So I guess this is Rejection 177. I will not leave my notebook behind for two weeks again. That put fear in my heart.
