So, I submitted another short story for publication…

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.
