Oh well

I know at least one story you won't be seeing in the Dark Jesters Anthology. Mine. Just got the rejection last night. They said it was funny enough but not through the whole thing apparently (I am still trying to figure that one out!)

I found another market, gave it another look see and sent it off again. I should hear back by late March. (Ha!)

I just can't believe it is Friday already. The week flew by. I figure I had better make the most of my day and get about fifteen gazillion words written today. Just to be safe I will be happy with 1,500 words.

0n another note, but the same song, I am starting to get the short story bug again. This is really going to throw the novel thing for a loop but at this point I am happy to be writing what I want and when I want to. (except on weekends when my family takes over my life for me :) ) If I don't hear back good news from an editor before then I will wish everyone a happy weekend and see you on Monday.

Too bad about the DJ submission. Good luck with the new market!

I find that if I work on one form for a while, I want to try somethign else before too long. If I work on a novel, I'll want to do a short story. If I work on short stories, I'll want to do a screenplay.

At least they thought your story was funny. :/)

Rob- usually I am pretty good with seeing a short story to the end. I am working on two novels right now.

Cate- That was the only consolation. I just hope other people have better luck than me with that market.

DJ is sending out rejections? Looks like I'm going to be glued to my laptop all weekend.

Good luck with the story--I'm sure the next market will snap it up!

Jamie Eyberg said...

Nat- good luck. with only 10 spots I think they are pretty tough. Hopefully your twisted sense of humor dazzles them.

K.C.- me too. I hate finding new markets for stories.

Hey--it's funny. Mine was "not funny". I can do funny live, in person. Not always with the words.

I'm pretty somber in real life. Did I tell you the one about the monkey in the bar?

Hey, you're in good company, they rejected mine on Wednesday for what sounds like may be the opposite as yours: not a good enough story. c'est la vie...

Jeremy- We'll both get 'em next time. (think there will be a next time?)
