Seeing the LightPosted: July 14, 2009
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?
