I got a flash acceptance today on the flash I kept rewriting. Can't announce where until January but it's a relief to have placed it (and somewhere I really want to publish). And within minutes I got a rejection of a brand new flash that I'd sent out immediately after finishing it a few days ago. I thought it had a good chance and I was crushed.
Almost time for a year-end summary of what I've accomplished in my writing in 2022 and right now I feel like it's been nothing. Not really true. I have two major pubs, both from THE LUNATICS' BALL, coming out in winter and spring 2023. But when I started writing ten years ago I was so much more productive! And right now I feel stalled on THE LUNATICS' BALL, unable to advance until I finish some rewrites, unable to motivate myself to do them.
