Anyway, now I have to get these stories back out. Rejection slips come in waves, I've noticed, so after having nothing to do but write for a long period, I suddenly have to start shoveling things out the door before they pile up. My marketing muscles atrophy between waves, I suspect, because I don't have a deep enough portfolio of fiction. That'll change as I write more short stories, but it won't change fast. Although I think I've improved my craft in the short story department, I'm still a novelist at heart, therefore I spend most of my writing time on novels. Eventually I may have enough short stories in final form that I'll be sending stuff out all the time. Hmm. That may not necessarily be a good thing.
It's hot hot hot today, a good day to stay home and write, especially if you have AC or a nice basement office. (Mmmm, basement ....) But first (I guess, *pout*) I will see about sending my stories back out into the world. Stay cool today, INKers and Friends of INK.
