my First withdrawal of a story submission

Well, it was there for eleven months and they never responded to my two previous queries. And people who discussed the anthology on the original anthology call had all withdrawn their submissions.

So, I guess it was time.

Now, where to send it? And should I revise it? I haven't even seen the story in almost a year. What will I think of it now?

In general, I've let my "practice management" slip and need to get back on it. I did send a query for a story that's a month beyond the outer limit, and I have five other stories that need to go back out. Bad writer! But good writer by Sunday night, I swear it!
