I have all but one (decent) story out on submission right now, and it's driving me up a wall. Part of me wants to scream "Reject me already!!!!"

I know if it takes a while, that seems to be a good sign, like they're giving it a second look or something, but it is *Not* good for my anxiety 😅

Decided "What the hell, I'll submit the last one too" so it's anxiety town here

and already have a rejection for this one 😩

I really like this piece, please don't make me self-publish it as pretend fanfiction

@lapis Huh I had so many fairytale/mythological retelling submission calls on my feeds for a while, but they seem to be dry this time of year! I'll let you know if anything comes up.

@ljwrites yeah please. I submitted to a pro magazine that said they didn't auto-reject retellings, but I'm not optimistic.
