Remember when I said I was going to write another novel instead of shorts? Then when I said no wait, I’m going to work on editing? Well, now I’ve got some other plan.
I’m going to sell a story to Clarkesworld, and keep writing stories until I do. If it means I write a novel concurrently with shorts, I’m going to keep writing short stories until I get one accepted there.
My most recent story was rejected, so now it’s on to the next. This one will be better, as will each one after that… eventually I’ll win.
It’s on, Clarkesworld! I’m going to defeat you!
