I meant Strange. Sorry about that. Damn, my zombie stories suck. Spent way too much time on those. I probably learned something because I believe every writer writes what they are supposed to when they are supposed to. It's all part or leading up to something, right? Like who cares if I have to write 100 stories to get a good one. The good ones are good, but I wouldn't get there without those other hard tries. I think we could see some action in the next month when it comes to submission responses. Places want to get the numbers down before the new year and stuff like that. So, I think it's likely some are actually reading more. Send me a message if you want me to check anything for you on duotrope. It will tell you how long the average submission has been out, recent responses, a ton of stuff that can give you a clue where you are in line. I often read way to into it, but I absolutely love it and have been using it since I sent my very first submission. I just know that given the time my stories went and and where they went somewhat of an estimated timeline. I'm not sure I'll personally hear too much for the rest of the year. I could be totally wrong and usually am.
