Basic in design and with amateurish unevenness throughout, but it is my first completed "from scratch" yarn venture.
I am too easily sidetracked from writing. I need my laptop back so I can sequester myself away in the library where there are fewer distractions. But on an up note, I now have a warm afghan thingy to drape over my lap when I do return to my writing base.
- 83-day rejection . . . I think, from TQR. I took it as an oblique rejection when my story didn't make it into their newly published issue and requested they re-send the original rejection on their forum as I hadn't received it. A short while later I got the communiqué confirming the pass, although their email sort of implies that they want me to do another rewrite on it:
"Although I can't take the time to detail these issues in this email, I will certainly do so in the near future if you permit me. Given the proper attention, I believe that your story could find its way onto our pages in the near future."
Erm. So yeah, I've sent an email back asking for a clarification on that.
