Short and sharp

Well that was quick. After sending off 4 stories just a few days ago, I’ve already got my first rejection!

Based on the speed and curtness of the response, I’d say that my story is really not what they were after. It was my first foray into writing horror and also my first time submitting to Apex Magazine. Perhaps my ambitions were too lofty. Nema problema. I’ll do some editing, find another market for the story and send it off again.

Stop. Start. Again. Repeat.
