Riding The Range Once More

There's not much more depressing than what happened last night: spending an hour taking a 600 word short-short (that was already pretty tight) and cutting it down to a 500 word short-short because the target market has an absolute ceiling of 500 words for flash fiction, and then, then accidentally overwriting it with the original 600 word version. Sigh.

But aside from that little setback, I finally have everything back out to market. Fifteen short stories and five poems, all looking for homes. Ah. A moment of satisfaction.

Now, you know what to do now, don't you? That's right. Have a drink. Take a walk. Then go write something else.

Update: Ah, dammit. ASIM sent me a one day rejection. Guess the moment's over.
