Seems like a big step! Best of luck to you.
Sigh... Couldn't sleep, got up at 3:30 am since I was tired of lying awake in bed, and found a 12 day form rejection from Uncanny. Not my night, apparently.
Two rejections in one day! A 29-day "close but no cigar" honorable mention in The Molotov Cocktail's "Elemental" flash fiction contest. That's the fourth time this story has been shortlisted/held for consideration/made the final round/etc. and it's getting frustrating. Everyone likes it, but no one wants to publish it! Grrrr...
At least they invited me to resubmit it for regular consideration, noting that while it's not a guarantee, they have accepted quite a few contest losers in the past. I shall have to ponder that...
A 62 day form rejection—sadly, I did not win the $15,000 Rattle Poetry Prize. But since the entry fee was just the price of a subscription, I still made out fine.
