Yesterday I prematurely launched a short story towards an ezine and promptly cancelled my submission today explaining I wanted to try again with a better text. This aspect of short story writing is very frustrating to me. Time and again I pounded out stories only to detect after I sent them out typos, poor story pacing, and other flaws which resulted in rejection slips. I really put all my heart into my latest effort and want it published so bad I can taste it. But no matter how hard I try, I keep finding something to fix. Just how long do you have to proofread a short story before it is done?
