I won’t lie. After the past couple bits of good news I received, I was hoping to keep the ball rolling. I had a similar hope over a year ago when I sold my first story to a paying market.

But that wasn’t the case. I hit the road hard and had a long 1 year 5 month dry spell. Until last week.

But now, it seems history is repeating itself.

I received a 45-day rejection from the Black Box anthology for four flash pieces.

The editors had some nice things to say, and I had apparently made it to the short list, but in the end, it was a no-go.

That’s okay though. I’m still happy about my last sale, and though saying this next bit has proven to be an affective jinx, I feel pretty good about some of my other submissions.

Anyway, despite it all, I continue my work on the novel.
