Asimov’s enters the 21st century

May 3, 2010

I’m not the first to crow about it, but Asimov’s is accepting electronic submissions.  Hoorah!  It’s the same system Clarkesworld and Lightspeed use, though it’s hard to imagine they’ll rival those markets’ rejection times.

So I did what everyone else is doing and sent in a story.  G.B., actually.  Long shot, but it’s really a wild card story that could snag interest anywhere…or nowhere.  We shall see.

I still need to toss L.R. back out there.  Not sure where.  Maybe I’ll zoom in sometime this week and get it back out.  Apparently Clarion West liked it better than they liked “Poison Inside the Walls”, so it must have something.  *sigh*  Why did I pick such a frustrating dream.  It could be worse; I could have aimed at becoming a screen writer.  Or an actor.  A rock star.  Ballet dancer…

    I hear you on the frustrating dream part 🙂 I’m up to 88 rejections in the last 14 months…

    But it definitely could be worse. I remind myself that a lot. At least I have a chance to pursue my dream career.

    I’m glad Asimov’s has electronic subs now, even though I just sent them a snail sub like two weeks ago. Grr. Will make things faster in the future though, for sure.

    I see your progress bar for the novel is up to 10%! Go go go 🙂

    Yeah, the frustration of getting a rejection, then having to send that story out and wait another week-2 months is hard to endure sometimes.

    But, everyone offers the nearly-universal advice of simply continuing to write to ward off the anxiousness of waiting on those lazy editors.
