The Long Wait
Every writer has a certain part of the process that they hate. For some it is the conception, for others the outlining, and for most the editing. I think for me it is the long wait between the submission of a story and the reply. Whether it be rejection or acceptance, it is the waiting that kills me.
Since my last acceptance (“The Plumber” to Devil’s Work) I have had no response to my many other submissions. And on top of that, I continue to submit new stories.
Is no response better than a bad response?
Hell no! That’s gotta be the stupidest question I ever heard, and if it wasn’t me who asked it, well, there’d be hell to pay.
Since this isn’t really leading to anything, I’ll just post my recent news:
A short 500 word story, “The New Horror,” was recently submitted to Raven’s Electrik.
I am nearing completion of two other stories that I have been working on for longer than I’d like to admit. With their completion, I will undoubtedly submit them.
As already stated, I have no new news of new stories to come.
And now, I will get back to writing.
