I’m Lucky I Haven’t Been Posting Stories On Here

I’m lucky I haven’t been posting stories on here. That probably sounds odd, but it’s true.

Whenever I start getting discouraged about a story getting rejected, I pause to think that I can always just use it for a post on here some time if it just doesn’t fit anywhere else. Then I usually keep submitting and/or take a look to see if it doesn’t need some kind of revision. I keep the idea of using it as a blog post in the back of my head, but so far whatever has always been accepted somewhere else first.

Of course, I do have pieces that haven’t been accepted somewhere that I’m not still sending out, but most of those I just decided were bad and haven’t faced rewriting yet. I also wrote some specially for this blog, but those were quick dash-offs that I didn’t feel merited actual writing. So far there’s been nothing that I felt was a real story that I had to resort to using as a blog post because no one took it before I got sick of trying.

I’ve been lucky. That’s all it is.
