Zero Chance

It's official as of yesterday. I have no stories being considered at Woman's World magazine. Johnene's rejection of my latest came in the mail. I knew a few moments of frustration, because I thought this was one of my good ones, but oh,well.

Now I need to get off my butt and write some more stories for them. Like I've told my writing students, you can't get published if you don't have a story out there. Besides, I enjoy that Monday through Saturday USPS hope, but with no stories submitted, I can expect only the usual bills, junk, etc.

That's a bummer, Kate. But just keep on writing! Do you ever submit your short fiction to other pubs?

Aw, especially since you thought it was one of your better ones. Bummer. I was one of your students (great class, learned alot). Do you know if any of your students have been published yet? (My first two submissions are at WW right now.) Keep writing. I will too.

Hugs, Kate. Rejection sucks, I know.

Can you try other markets for that piece/those pieces?

No, I don't ever revise the stories and send them out again. I'd rather keep writing new stuff.

No, I haven't heard of any of my students selling, except Diane Crawford, but she was selling to them before she took the class. :)

Thanks, you guys, for the consolation. I'm not all that bummed, but I AM unmotivated. I'm just more interested in writing my wolf book right now.

Rhian, you crack me up! I AM writing the wolf book. :D It was on hold for a while because I was editing book one in the series. (The Wolf Book is book two.) But I finished that and Adam and Paige's story is on the front burner!

Did you get the bracelet? There's an extra surprise in the package. ;)
