Home – finished, printed and mailed. Fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
So, two rejections yesterday. Actually, one rejection (from Hustler) and I found out I didn’t place in the contest I entered. Hustler jotted a handwritten note on the bottom of the form letter. It went something like, “Almost… not enough sex… sex starts too late…” I can’t write a hardcore story to save my life! But it’s cool. I’m almost there. One of these days I’ll get it right.
And the rejections coming in means I need to get cracking on more submissions. Hubby brought up a valid point yesterday when he asked if I ever resubmit the stuff that gets rejected. And a lot of the time I don’t. One reason is because when I submit something to a publication, it’s usually so tailored to that place that it wouldn’t really fit anywhere else, especially a Hustler story or a contest or anthology piece with a theme. I mean, I really like Instructions For Sexing Susan, but what am I going to do with an erotic typewriter story? I don’t know how I can go about writing things that could fit in either a themed or a general erotic publication, but it’s something to work on.
Came up with another story idea. That’s about it. Very tired.
