Or finished the rewrite rewrite. I can't believe I was submitting that thing. What a piece of junk. Granted, it was the first thing I actually successfully did BRAWL rewrites on, but ugh, no wonder it was collecting rejection letters.

I mean, it's *still* going to collect rejection letters, but at least now it's less deserving of them.

Fly, little story. Try to find a nest that's *not* feathered with rejections...

Asimov's rejected "Sufficiently Advanced Printing" today.

I'm really not sure where to send this story now. It's a bit of a weird bug - very SF in feel, but with a bit too much magic to be a standard hard story. I think I'm just going to put it on the shelf for a bit and let it sit. Maybe I can find someplace worthwhile to send it later, but for now, I think it's just going to have to collect dust.

I sent Sufficiently Advanced Printing off to Asimov's today. I expect I will get rejected and then I really will have no idea where to send it. It has too much magic for me to expect much luck with Analog, and there doesn't seem to be much else out there that's a good fit. Sadly, I remember looking at Ralan's when I was in college and just out of it and being completely overwhelmed by the breadth of places to submit short stories...

...that's not there anymore. Especially for a fairly generic Techno-magic story.

Fortunately, BRAWL has reminded me that they all had this sort of sucky period where they sent crap out regularly, and I can't say that I've been terribly regular about it. So it isn't entirely my fault, except that I've been lousy about doing my research and sending the stories OUT. If they're not out and in circulation, they won't get published.

So, if they come back, I'm only allowed to let them languish if I've tried absolutely everywhere I can think of to send them.


We'll see how long *this* resolution lasts... :/

(It would probably help if I were better at writing short fiction.)
