  • Mood:

the first submission (and rejection) in .... oh ... five years?

So I submitted a story to F&SF for the special issue guest-edited by CC Finlay, and a few days ago I rejection a very nice rejection that felt non-stock and ended with "please submit in the future" (or something like that).

But I can't say exactly what it said because I accidentally *deleted* the email! Sheesh.

For it being my first submission in five years, I am very happy with the result. I knew the story wasn't as strong as it could be but I decided to submit it at the last minute. Now I can do a little clean up (or even rewrite, it's a flash piece) and send it off elsewhere. While I continue a grounds-up rewrite of another story that I've wanted to submit for many many years.

All part of getting back in the game again...
