…and another

November 17, 2009

I weep.  Okay, more a sniffle.

“Secondhand Rush” was rejected today by Strange Horizons.  It was my best bet so far, I think, but it “failed to win over” the editorial assistant.  Shucks.

I’ll have to check to see what pro markets haven’t passed on it.  So far, I think it’s only hit Clarkesworld, the bar at JBU, WotF, and now SH.  I’ll keep trying.  I could have used a big break about now…but when couldn’t I?

No real story production on my end of late.  Between school and the fluid that refuses to evacuate my wife’s lungs, I’m hard pressed for time and too weary when I have it.  My day job is trying to suck out my soul (one of Strange Horizon’s cliche story concepts) and I really need an energizer.  Or maybe just a beer.

    I really admire your tenacity. Hope your wife feels better soon!

    I’ve had a story there for almost two months now, I’m getting antsy. 😦

    I hope your wife feels better soon. Aren’t you a teacher? (do I remember that right?). If so isn’t winter break coming? Sounds like you could use it.
