The story, titled ‘Three Seconds’, has been edited and sent off to Clarkesworld. Unfortunately, as I realized when I opened the file to send it to a friend, I somehow royally fucked up the formatting. Multiple fonts, no indentations, missing paragraph breaks… yeah, it was pretty terrible. So, now I’m just waiting around to be rejected so I can send it back and hope they take a look at it this time, cause if I were an editor, I’d reject it out of hand after looking at the first page. So. That was pretty discouraging. Lesson learned: check everything 6 times.
