I entered “Wobble” into an extremely prestigious writing contest and guess what, it didn’t win. Or place or show. It happens, part of the whole shoot-for-the-moon aspects. Oh well, that counts as rejection number 196. Four more to my 200 rejection milestone.
Not even a real rejection letter, just a note basically saying if you didn’t receive a nice fat envelope you’re out of luck:
“As a courtesy, we wanted to inform you that after months of difficult decision making, judging has wrapped up; participants with winning entries were notified in December.”
Oh well. “Wobble” is a great Sci Fi short story; I’m sure it will sell. Hopefully. Maybe. Nope, I am sure, final answer.
Keep on writing everyone.
