Re: Five Minute Rant

RANT! Clarkesworld rejected my Q4 HM after one day! It's taken them longer to read some of my barely-above-flash stories. Hmpf. Next market! They rejected my Q3 finalist in two days. They are just plain 'bleep'ing fast. On the plus side, makes it quick to send out to the next market! Bah! My storie...

This feels like a rant as well as "mixed feelings."

My Q2 HM story came back from asimov's today. Form rejection.

This was my first time submitting a story to a market other than WOTF. Oh well. As soon as it came back I turned around and sent it off to another one!


Good luck at the next market.
