Last year I made a point of putting out two submissions per week, and not surprisingly, I sold a lot more. This year, I’m concentrating on finishing the non-fiction book about the observatory, and I’ve been doing very little submitting. Obviously that means that the steady drip-drip-drip of rejections has dried up
So I was mildly surprised when a story came back yesterday after a very long wait, and pleasantly surprised that it was a “…but do send us more” rejection.
And I looked for another story to send them. But I didn’t have another suitable horror story free. One’s waiting for a reply elsewhere, I haven’t written any lately because I’m busy with the observatory book, and I’ve sold all the others.
I’m astonished. What a delightful problem to have.
