Persistence above all: "Long Christmas" is up at 50 to 1; Staccato takes "Stumpy Got Away The First Day"

My little 50-word ditty, “Long Christmas” is up at 50 to 1.  You’ve got 17 seconds to spare to read it, don’t you, and maybe another 17 or so to comment?  My thanks.

Another little flash of mine, “Stumpy Got Away The First Day” will be up this Thursday at Staccato Microfiction.

I’m kind of proud of this little guy.  It endured 17 (!) rejections before Chris at Staccato saw fit to take it in.  I thought this one might have a little trouble getting published, but 17 rejections seems a tad harsh.

In publishing, persistence above all.

An acceptance! – PANK

After a rewrite, PANK is going to take my story “The Cloud Factory.” for the September issue.  As noted on the Failure page, PANK has previously rejected 6 stories of mine.  So I’m pretty damn happy to finally have scaled that citadel. 

 “The Cloud Factory” was rejected 11 times before finding a home.
