If at first you don't succeed

Oh, I am so glad my first attempt at a story for The Black Garden anthology was rejected as it spurred me on to try again, and I really, really like my second attempt. Whether Christopher does is another matter of course.

Have just submitted Manipulating Paper Birds. Gulp!

Now, having deserved a well-earned rest, I'm off to watch the 3rd Planet of the Apes movie. I'm working my way through the box set - the 2nd movie was laughably atrocious, I hope this one fears better. Ooh, actually typing that makes me wonder if that's an omen for the above submission. Maybe it will be better luck third time around with that too... Have I ever mentioned that I'm an optimistic pessimist???

Loving that title! I got my second rejection for my new story over the weekend from TBG. I think I will gracefully bow out now...

Thanks girls.

Barry - It's a shame it didn't make it; MPB will probably be my last attempt as well. At least we tried. :)
