Sub 01: result

Another rejection to add to the folder. *rueful sigh*

However, there is another anthology I can submit it to, just in the nick of time. So another polish, and off we go again! And there is another sub to do the final polish on and submit, too, and I've had a few new ideas stick their heads in and demand to be fiddled with, so all is good.

One day... one day, I will look back at this and smile. I just have to keep reminding myself that this will shape me into the writer I want to be. It didn't even hurt that much to read the rejection, which shows how far I've grown in so little time.

The Waiting Process (Sub:01)

I'd forgotten how horrible the submitting-and-then-waiting-for-a-reply part of writing is. *jitters and bites fingernails*

I've grown very attached to the story I've just submitted (we'll call it sub: 01 for organisation's sake). Let's see how the baby does out in the big, bad world.
