Submissions progress

Day 2 of the Achieve 100 rejections slips project. Yesterday I checked over one of the stories I wrote while on the creative writing diploma course and printed it out.

I think there is some kind of digital creature that lays its eggs in story manuscripts. When the eggs hatch, the invisible grubs chew at the words and introduce errors that were not there last time the writer looked.

I mean that has to be it, right? There were half a dozen stupid little slips that couldn't have been there before.... could they? I had gone over and over that story and at least two people had critted it. Where had these slips come from?

Anyway, it now contains fewer stupid slips and it's on its way to an editor.

Pending Accepted Rejected
