Mine's finished :cheers: I'll run it through the crit group next month and then send it off with fingers crossed :smiley:

Thanks, Oz -- I hope you're not disappointed. I would have liked to have done more with it, but 2,500 words is a pretty tough limit.

Oh well -- at least the story made it through two passes, and it's a nicve rejection letter :afro:

I wanted to drop a line and thank you for being patient with us. We have been overwhelmed with submissions (thousands!) and your story had made it through two passes, but after the third reading we are going to pass on it--not that there is anything wrong with your story, it's just the competition is very tight with this anthology.

Thanks again for submitting!

So close! Still, it must have been very good to last that long out of thousands.

Thanks :afro: TBH, I was surprised it made it through that far, as I wasn't sure whether it hit the right note. I must have got somewhere near what they were looking for. The story is in the crit group archive if you want to read it. It's not what you would call horror -- more bawdy humour than anything, I suppose.
