Well, technically it was a while ago, but I figure I should be hearing back from the publishing house soon.
Just for giggles, I re-read that short story yesterday afternoon….
Let’s just say I will be very surprised if I get an acceptance email.
Sometimes, the things you create are just not very good.
It happens – it’s okay.
This is why it’s so important to put some distance between you and your work sometimes.
Write something, edit and revise and re-write it.
Then put it away for a little while.
Work on something else, read some cool books and take some time to study your craft.
Then come back to that thing you made a couple weeks/months ago.
See what you can apply what you’ve learned to make it better.
