[writing] it's just a Big "No" Parade around here

I got a "no" from F&SF today, and I realized that it seems like I've received a lot of "no"s in the last week.

I counted and it's six in the last six days, and eleven in two weeks.

On the one hand, that's good. Because it means I'm submitting stories.

On the other hand, OUCH!

Of course, it's right at the end of the month when I have two stories to submit somewhere by tomorrow so it's going to be hard to find time to turn the stories around. But turn them around I must! Otherwise, my end of the month metrics will look terrible.

Because while not submitting guarantees you'll never receive a "no", it also guarantees you'll never receive a "yes".

And I want that "yes". So, back out they go! Do you hear that, stories? Don't unpack just yet...
