Okay, I had a story rejected today. One that I thought was a sure shot. Sure, I’m very self-critical about my work, but this one was good. Very good. Better than some of the garbage I’ve read in reputable mags. Still, this one was rejected. A very big disappointment.
I need to re-evaluate my direction here. I’ve already seriously slowed down my output. Either I change my genre, or stop altogether. Most certainly the material I thought was decent, and my ability to write somewhat proficient, apparently isn’t working.
