On Friday I submitted a short story. It was my 1st attempt at Fantasy genre (although I have read the genre!) an Urban Fantasy at that (easier I thought as I have lived in cities and never the mountains or forests!)
It took me the best part of the week to complete and was 4012 words.
The idea was born from a Picture It and Write challenge I posted last weekend.
I have just checked my inbox, I did miss the deadline – the publication I saw open submission call out in had printed the incorrect deadline.
However, when you find yourself in rejectionsville it’s nice to carry around a bit of paper that says it wasn’t bad. Writing needs to fit. Considering it was my 1st attempt and it was for an international market I don’t feel dejected – I feel like there is a lot to learn and I am going to keep trying.
It is another pleasant email rejection, my manuscript was at least read. (Yipee!) Not bad for a submission 2 days late of the deadline! I take that (if it is indeed true) to be a huge compliment.
‘It’s really good …
