Over the weekend, being pretty much snowed in, I devoted some time to finding likely markets for some of my stories and submitting them. Among them was what sounded like a good publication for my Fathers and Sons story “When we were young and life was full in us.” The publication had a themed issued coming up dealing with “Milestones” and my story certainly deals with one of those. So I made the submission, hopeful and even a bit confident.
Then I went to Duotrope’s Digest to record the submission. And I learned that I had already submitted that same story to that same magazine about two weeks ago. Oops. I don’t know if that’s going to annoy the editors or not.
