I'm getting responses back from my queries quite quickly. Is it a bad sign to get a response from a query letter very quickly? I'm sending off a few pieces to a few places, and their turnaround time is 2 weeks...3 weeks...1 month...etc. according to their web sites. However, I'm getting rejections within 24-48 hours sometimes. Now, it's not the fact that I'm getting rejection letters that bugs me. Every piece of work will get quite a few. But it's the response time that has me wondering. When a place says they'll respond within a few weeks to a months or two, but I get my rejection back in a fraction of that time, is that a bad sign? Does my query letter need work? Not that any query letter is perfect. Are they even getting to my stories? These are flash fiction and short stories--none of them are above 1,500 words--so reading wouldn't take long. Are these places just going through a period of extreme efficiency and I shouldn't read too much into this?
