Short story rejection arrived today via email. It's almost comforting in its familiarity. (Though I remain frustrated by how many people misread this story. If many people are going astray, then it's my fault as an author, I realize, but I thought that things were pretty damn clear. Apparently not. Ah, well. It is odd that my twistier stories are easier to follow than my earlier, straightforward stories.)
I realize that I've been forgetting to mark down response times. Again. Damn.
