fruit blanket on tingling tongue
dulling the synapses
comprehension takes a step back
I’ve had a new ‘stone’ published today on A Handful of Stones.
Click on the link to have a look. Or, just look at the little ‘widget’ on the right. It’s there too!
i hate the sting
i hate the process
i love the result

I had a submission rejected for a short story a few days ago. They said the ending was too predictable.
This was a fair point really as it was too predictable. I thought it at the time but I figured it would be okay.
Which is fine. I should have done more at the time. I should have pushed the boat (or thought) out a little bit more.
I’ll have another crack soon and I’ll listen and act on my own criticism before I send it off this time rather than agreeing with it when I receive the identical criticism back.
Don’t you just love these ‘Doh!’ moments?
