I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence
And so the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through

Rejection Sunday

All around fab frequent commenter, writer, and editor Camille sends word that she's passing on Prince Wanted. She says Abyss & Apex isn't the right place for the humor in the story. Fair cop. She also makes some recommendations and says very nice things about my little story. So I'm pretty sure this isn't her form rejection letter. Thanks, Camille.

So with her recommendation, Prince Wanted is off to The Town Drunk. My first attempt resulted in a server error, so we're trying again. Update, received another server error. So now I have no idea if it went through or not, or if the problem is my dial-up and a less than adequate time-out function. So far no reply email that they've received the submission. We'll try again later.

edit Third attempt also failed. "Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster." I'm going to go with they didn't get the file and try again tomorrow.
