It has been a busy enough week.

I’ve been sifting through the various sands for publishers who will do reprints – as I’ve noted before, everything published either here or on Patreon counts as a reprint – and submitting the various stories that I’ve created so far.  And so now it’s just a matter of sitting back, and watching the rejection emails flow in. Although I still have a bunch of stories that I have yet to prep for sending out, mostly because I want to have a nice, even flow. I figure that getting into a routine of making sure that I send out at least one story every day to be rejected will keep me productive.

This is, by the way, not despair talking.  The expectation here for me has to be that I will gather a plethora of rejections. That’s just simply how it works. That’s how it works for everybody. And while I am of course a brilliant writer, I am also competing now in an arena that has its own rules and ways of doing things. So there’s that.  Besides, eventually they’ll start sending me rejection emails that explain why.  Feedback that I can use, in other words.

  1. Best of luck and since it’s a numbers game, keep on keeping on. I remember Joe Straczynski talking about his ordeal and getting a chance to talk to Harlan Ellison and his advice was to write stuff that doesn’t suck. 🙂 Hope that helps.
