It’s autumn, my favourite season, but it feels like summer. The sun is shining and the skies are blue. It makes me want to go out and enjoy the sunshine. Which I might do but I would much prefer to write something. Perhaps a new short story even though I already have a story in for submission. Though there is nothing to say I can’t have two stories in the submission stage. I’ve done it before.
There is a problem however. Some journals and magazines only allow you to submit one story at a time or per opening. Which is understandable, they most likely have a lot of stories to read and their time is limited.
I also received another rejection for my story The Student. I think it’s good. However of the ten journals I sent it to none of them accepted it. Rather than be disheartened I will go through it again and see if I can better it in someway not that I really think it needs improvement, but the market dictates I do something with it.
I don’t mind rejections at all. Most of my stories are rejected by at least two or three journals before eventually they are accepted by another one. It is understandable, rejection, I may simply not be or rather my story may not be suitable for the journals I am submitting them too.
