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*
Aww, I'm sorry to hear this. Maybe it'll fit in elsewhere.
Thanks, Tessa! I'm sure I'll find something to do with it.
Still haven't heard back on my story yet, but you already know I have a bad feeling about this one. I'm sure your story will have a home soon enough! :)
Well, I still hope you have better luck, Nicole!
That's a great theme for October! Although you'll have to help me make my story scary! :) You're the master of that!
Too bad for Pill Hill. I bet they passed up a good one!
Yep, just opened the rejection email. This one doesn't sting since I expected it. Now I can polish it and send it elsewhere.
Aubrie - You know I'll help you with a scary story!
Nicole - That's too bad. At least you are in good company. :) Good luck sending it elsewhere.
