Well, I got my first rejection today of September. Pill Hill Press rejected "Government Project 103-1-10" for their Monster Mash anthology. I was a bit worried that they might because the story probably wasn't scary enough for what they were looking for. They were kind enough to mention that Living Dead Press is doing a similar anthology. Unfortunately, my story is 2300 words, and they were looking for stories 3500-10,000 words. Although I could extend the story perhaps, I don't want to. Frankly, I like it as is.
So what are my plans for "Government Project 103-1-10?" If Raven and the Writing Desk's theme for October is horror/monsters/Halloween, then you'll be able to read it for free in October. We haven't decided upon the theme yet, but I would love to put it up there as a free read. I enjoyed writing the story. Plus, it would give me one less thing to write in October. *winks*
I also received a couple blog awards, but more on that in the next post. *grins*
