bits and pieces
Well, I got another rejection last week. It was for “When We Were Young and Life was Full In Us,” which is one of my Fathers and Sons stories. The publication is from the English Department of a southern university, and I had responded to their call for stories on the theme of pleasure. It was a form rejection, so I got no feedback on the story itself. But I rarely do.
So that story is out for consideration elsewhere, and I’m looking around for other targets.
In my effort to make October a productive month, I’ve already made two other story submissions this month, including a pie-in-the-sky submission to Glimmer Train. I realize there is little better than a zero percent chance of getting accepted there, but it feels good to try. And who knows. Maybe the stars will align just right.
A few other, non-Fathers and Sons story ideas have been asserting themselves in recent weeks. I’m reluctant to break the spell of the F&S stories by working on something else, but I’m thinking I’ll try to work on these other stories in some other venue: in the evenings or at the library or such.
And what’s with all of the spam comments I’m getting on this humble blog lately?Explore posts in the same categories: Rants and ruminations
