Rejected. esub 1/16.

Problems I know now that I didn't when I submitted:
1. I didn't have the new and interesting idea on page 1. or 2. or even . . .
2. I didn't name the narrator until page 26 (yep, that was a big problem, and I laughed at myself for being so foolish in editing as to have edited that out and not caught it.)

Problems I knew when I submitted:
1. length was over 16k by wordprocessor count, which probably put me over the limit. But that doesn't excuse problems 1 and 2 above.

Onward.
Q4/31: Submitted 9/30 e-sub. HM 12/9/14 by email.
Q3/30: Submitted 6/30 e-sub. rejected...meh, sometime.
Q4/29: Submitted 9/28 e-sub. Rejected 12/11/12 email.
Q3/29: Submitted 6/30 e-sub. withdrawn 7/10.
Q2/29: Submitted 1/16 e-sub. Rejected 7/9 email.

This is very funny, but I just got a rejection. Darn it, we were one week away from having someone get a rejection and then win!!! The story was about 2K and a rush job (because I'd attended two major workshops back to back and was knee deep in novel writing. I'm not at all surprised. Hope Joni pulls my Q3 though :)
