Okay. Enough whining and whimpering. Time to pick yourself up by your own bootstraps and kick your own butt. So what if you're getting rejections, ya big baby. Think you're going to just sit here under your rock and let the world pass you by? I think not. Now get out there and fight!
This morning, I sent a submission to Abyss & Apex Magazine of Speculative Fiction. I sent them Haudego, which is probably best described as speculative. (And now that I think about it, so is Blink... Yay! I found a genre!) They say to expect a two month lead time. That's the Geromino moment.
Oh, and BTW, I finally heard back from Ploughshares. After having my poem for 6 months, they said No. *shrug* Their loss.
Today is going to be devoted to yard work, but when it gets too hot this afternoon, I'll be sitting here working on putting together some query packets for Monday. And if I don't, feel free to get out the hickory switch.
ETA: The yard work got a little out of control, and I am too pooped to think. Save the beating for tomorrow, please.
