Had two knock backs in two days, short stories I’d submitted to Arcane and Something Wicked. The first was Softly, Softly Catchee Monkey, a short written as part of the Pill Hill Press Summer Shootout. It was a horror short so I sent into Arcane, but they feel its not for them.
The second was Troll, I originally wrote this for Pill Hill Press’ Dark Heroes anthology, it didn’t get accepted so I sent it into Something Wicked. But no luck there. But on the plus side I did get feedback from SW, they thought the idea was good, but the grammar, tense and spelling needed work.
I know this is an area I tend to fall over on a lot. The few pieces of proper feedback have mention one of more of these areas, so its something I need to address.
