So, last night I got my first rejection of the year.
And I sold the same story this morning.
Life is odd sometimes...
I did send off the game material last night so Christina can look it over and make specific notes on what she wants change, deleted, expanded, etc. But I finally have a base from which to work, and after a few days of intensive 'what the hell am I doing!' writing, I'm ready to get back to work on other material. I even have a new short story idea!
