Since it's apparent that Turnpike Gates is never going to get off the ground and there have been no updates, I've started shopping 'Quietus' around again for rejection. I wish I could say I'm joking, but it's already been rejected twice since August. Frankly, I'm wiping it off my hard drive and forgetting about it and every other story that apparently folks who aren't editors just LOOOOOOOOOOVE but which apparently editors think are steaming piles of shit.
Maybe a clean slate might work, maybe it will just confirm that I really do suck the big one. Who knows--I'm just tired of trying lately and it's damaging my calm considerably. I mean, it's been THREE fucking years since I've gotten a story published. I'm surprised it's taken me this long to get the message--I suck.
Off to go free up some hard drive space.
