One of the two stories I submitted to an anthology has been rejected *sigh*
I don't want to be pessimistic but... I have such hopes for the other story and I'm concerned it will follow the same fate. If it does, will I have enough oomph to pick myself up again? I hope so.
I'm thinking I should re-write my failed story and submit it as a novella or a quickie to an e-publisher. It seems to fit that kind of mould. Or that could just be my deluded self telling me it does!
It feels like such a long journey, yet others have taken many years longer. I hope mine is not going to be "many" years more!!! :-)
