5 replies back for my short stories, 5 of them rejections, all of them fairly positive ones. I seem to be suffering from an inability to send the right story to the right publication, which I suppose is better than suffering from an inability to write well.

So far I’ve been told my pieces are too contemporary, too long, too short, or not quite the right tone. All publications invited me to submit again, or revise and resubmit same piece. None of these rejections hurt my feelings overly much, but invites to resubmit always make me happy. ^^

I hope everyone else is doing good with their writing.
