Rejection = Try Again
The story I submitted, Chelsea's Grim, was rejected. But, I am not dishearten by this. The editor working on the anthology I submitted to, sent me a nice email stating that they liked my writing but, that the story didn't fit in with the theme of the anthology she is overseeing. She also said that they would like to see more of my work and for me to check out the publishing company's submission page to see what other anthologies they are taken submissions for. So, I did just that and submitted the same story to another anthology that they are working on. Haven't heard back from them, yet. It's been a week and the last time it was only 2 days. I don't know if this is a good sign. M U S T H A V E P A T I E N C E. So hard to though.
In my other endeavors, I have just listed three new items to my Etsy shop, KnitPurlHooked. Stop by and take a look. Everything in my shop is handmade by me in a smoke free home. I take great steps in ensuring that I'm doing top quality work with the best of materials at my disposal. All of my creations are made with love and an eye towards every detail.
Time for me to head back to the sweat shop. This stuff won't make itself :p
