What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Submission Saturday

Okay, checking up on some old submissions and I find I've killed another market. Doorways seems to be down for the count. Sigh. Okay, well, then, we're going to look at things I haven't heard anything back on for a year or more and submit.

So, "Rag-a-Bag" is off to Andromeda Spaceways.

"What the Sea Sends" is off to Strange Horizons.

And finally Daddy's Little Girl is off to Clarkesworld. Why, because I like my rejection like I like my alcohol addition. Quick and painful. Or, something like that.

edit Damn, just checked and I'm already #62 at Clarkesworld. And yes, I am just that neurotic. Thank you internet for being an enabler.

Keep on trying, that's all we can do.

I like sites that give a queue or status update. Makes the oncoming reply that much more exciting. Or at least I get the sense that someone somewhere is doing something with the submissions.

Yes it does. Although it also feeds the neuroticism of "OMG, what are they doing with it. What does it mean that the numbers go slow/fast."

For me, I usually remember to check just about the time I get the rejection.
