    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... :mad:

    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.
