My current story is starting to turn out longer than I wanted, but I’m sure I’ll find ways of trimming it down when I’m ready to revise. I know of one whole scene that can probably go, as it’s very passive and all it does is frame some exposition. Still, I have some story left to tell before I get to that stage.
Meanwhile, Desperate Upload is on its fifth market now, counting Writers of the Future as the first. Analog rejected me after eleven days, which is actually rather miraculous. Looking at forum posts at the Writers of the Future forums, it seems they’d just caught up after a month of not sending any responses.
Now I have submitted it to Daily SF. This I expect to take a little while longer, as they average about two weeks for responses.
That’s it for now!
