Got a rejection last week for a short story that I subbed to a woman's magazine back in September. At least it was a good R...said that it was nicely written but too close to something they've already published. So I'm determined to find a unique angle.
But on the plus side I'm working on 2 new projects.
The first is another short story. It's rough right now, but I'm just trying to get it all down now. I'll polish it up later.
I'm also very pumped about my new ms. I've been doing a lot of work on understanding who my characters are--something I didn't do enough of with my first ms. And given the R it received, that's probably what was wrong with it. Needless to say I can't wait to get writing.
So much to do, so little time.
