Nothing exciting to see here. Move along folks.
54-days to a kind pass from Jed at Strange Horizons with a "looking forward to seeing your next one." I thought this story was an unlikely fit with them as it's very high on the high fantasy front, but I don't believe in self-rejecting. Plus, since I've never yet managed to fit anything with SH, I thought it was worth the try. Out it goes again.
The first draft short I completed last week is up at Critters.org. This batch is a three-weeker which is always a bit awkward. Normally by the third week, I feel pretty full-up on feedback and itching to finish the rewrite, but constrained to stick ye ole fork in until the end of the crit cycle. I like the normal one week time frame better, but since my alternative was to wait three weeks before sending up my story, I figure up is way better than waiting.
