Bad news is that I got an email yesterday from a magazine editor that I sent a short story to and she rejected it. I now have to think what to do about it. I might send it elsewhere or send it for a critique. We shall see.
The good news is that I got another email and this one was from the features editor of The Lady magazine. She said that they have only just found a viewpoint piece I'd sent them and were still interested in it if I could reduce the words and generalise it more then I could resend it to them. I replied, yes I would do that and get back to them with it. So last night, after a lot of searching, I found the piece and printed it out and will work on it this week to hopefully get it back to them next week. It's all happening.
Back to work now.
