thick skin report: Mothership
So I received a rejection the day after Independence Day for my story “Diaspora” that I had sent to a speculative fiction anthology that was looking for material. The story had already been published in Crossed Genres, so I was submitting it as reprint material. I’d sent it in back in February and pretty much forgot about it until the rejection showed up in my email. It was a form rejection, so I’m pretty sure it was not at all what they were looking for.
It would have been nice had it been accepted, but I’m not broken up that it wasn’t. It’s a good story, and if there is ever another chance for me to get it out there, I’ll give it a try. Otherwise, I keep on keeping on.
