All fine and dandy like cotton candy! …Until I suddenly had a major problem.
My novelette Still Life went live at GigaNotoSaurus! Along with MY FIRST SOLO REVIEW!
My anticipation is making me antsy, but it’s not because I am anticipating being a mentee. Rather, the opposite.
Some days the rejections don’t even bother me. Some days I see the notification and the first two lines “Dear Victoria…” and I let out strangled wookiee noises and regret giving up wheat/sugar.
I’ve worked hard for each and every rejection and like grey hairs I’m tired of pretending I don’t have any.
The story features an amusing use of the word ‘humidex’ (which none of my spell-checkers will accept). Enjoy!
Don’t you love the word ‘mollusc’? It’s like a piece of toffee in the mouth but requiring less dental work.
A few resolutions for the blag!
“What am I trying to achieve with this? What do I want to be different in the world as a result of me doing this?”
One of my stories got accepted!
It’s the first one since I started doing the 100 Rejection Challenge, and after all the weeks of doom and gloom it is a very welcome change!
