Erp. They're really piling up lately.
This could probably be seen as a shitty thing to say, but quite honestly, I had gotten used to a different submission/ acceptance/ rejection ratio for a little while there. Which I don't think is a terrible thing to acknowledge. I'm not discouraged by the increased rate of rejections of late. I'm just going to buckle down and work harder. As previously discussed, I think my writing might be in an adolescent period right now, so I'll work. Plain and simple.
239: Puerto del Sol
240: A really nice note from Chris at Annalemma letting me know more what he's looking for.
241: Five Points
That said, there's a new story of mine up atWunderkammer: Janice-Katie, Both Fruit and Flower. It was a story I wrote for a Rec Room reading in which all the readers used Stacy Levine's fascinating character, Janice-Katie, in a story all their own. The range is pretty terrific.
