So… I have an update on my last post (delay courtesy of Thanksgiving weekend!). I heard back last Monday from the editor and learned that my story wasn’t accepted. I’m trying to see this as an opportunity to send the story to another market and maybe hear back more quickly, but it’s my first rejection and I can’t pretend that I wasn’t a little upset. Still, all I can do is move on and keep trying. One day, I’ll get my first yes.
Fortunately, I didn’t have to think too hard about it over the weekend, as I spent some time with my parents, helping them build a deck and playing with their new dog Gypsy. She’s six and was rescued from a broken home, and she’s the sweetest little girl that I’ve ever met. Only time will tell if she gets along with my cats (they have yet to be introduced).
