What a day!

It has been a crazy day in the old mailbox. Over the last twenty-four hours I have heard back from 5 publishers. Four were rejections, three form, one personal and a quasi-invitational rewrite request. I believe I will take the editor up on his offer to re-read if I choose to re-write it. It sounds like a fair trade.

This just leaves eight or so more markets to hear from at this point. I figure I should hear back from them any time now. Most have been out for awhile although some seem to have sporadic response times.

Better get to re-reading my story so I can figure out where I can make it stronger.

Jeez, makes me glad I haven't heard from anyone today.

Get those stories back out there and good luck with the rewrite.

I know, kind of a bummer, but some were some pretty tough markets: tricycle press, Glimmer Train. . .

It must have been a cool story if the editor is willing to look at it again!

What Cate said: get those stories back out there. Aren't responses crazy-sporadic like that?

Best of luck with the rewrite.
