Not for lack of trying

Writer’s Relief rejected my submission based on limited markets, but they encouraged me to submit to their short story open submission. Unfortunately, I do not have anything to offer so I have resolved to move on. I didn’t expect to be accepted; they take on less than 2% of all submissions. However, I do appreciate that they took the time to read it, and that they said my writing was strong. Good news all around, as far as I’m concerned.

I’ve decided to take a step back from The Shadow Conflict to focus on other things, such as finishing Lifeline, catching up on my reading, and hunting down outlaws in Red Dead Redemption.


Whenever John Marston isn’t too drunk to shoot outlaws, that is.

I shall, as they say, carry on and persevere. Every rejection is a learning experience.
