Shimmer passed on this one too. May take a bit of time this evening and re-evaluate it.
My micro-fic Hold Music didn’t make it onto 101 Words.
The given reason (and I’m delighted that they take the time to personalise responses) was that it didn’t have enough story and that it was more of a vignette than a story.
Oh well, I’ll either use it elsewhere or post it here at some point.
I’ve been interviewed as part of the upcoming Reading 5×5 project. You can find the interview here:
No One Of Us passed on this too. Going to look at other possible venues.
That’s a no from Apex for this one too.
Rejection from 101 Words for a story that wasn’t enough of a story. Re-reading it I actually agree with this. It’s a punchline with a fragment of story as justification. I might do more with it later or just publish it here as a vignette.
Daily Science Fiction said no to this one too.
Saw an anthology that looked like a good fit for this one, so I’m going to try it there and see what they think.
Asymmetry didn’t want this. Will try other places.
Liminal passed on this one. Will take a look at other flash fiction markets for it.
Couldn’t find a home for this at Daily Science Fiction either. May pause with it for a minute and get a little more feedback before sending it out again.
I’ve got a few stories that have received a round of nos that I need to take a second look at. Might be time for a protracted editing session, or for writing something brand new.
