The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

Rewind back to Sept 29th, 2008, I submitted a story to Killer-works. It was just a short fiction piece that I was trying to find a home for. They said wait twelve weeks. January 5, 2009 I still had not heard a word, so I sent a query regarding my submission. No reply that is until today. Sadly they didn't think my short would be a fit with what they are looking for right now. The good spin you ask? Well, they did say they would enjoy seeing more of my short fiction. I printed the rejection and it is hanging by its twin up on the wall above me. Why you ask? Because, I believe, and this is just me, that each rejection pushes me one step closer to a acceptance. Also it's proof positive that I am out there submitting work. That after all is the biggest step in the right direction, to face down the fear and submit.
