I submitted a short story for the first time in a few years and my first non fiction pitch.
Both were rejected, but that’s just part of the experience.
I didn’t think I was going to get into submitting short stories again–I’m still not sure if it’s something I want to do regularly–but it provided a brain break from editing my novel.
I’ve never edited a novel before so I’m having difficulties getting over that hurdle.
We’ll see what happens next.
