"Me Myself I" rejected by Asimovs by form letter.
Both these rejections came just before the year ended, so I can (stupidly) say I have as yet had no rejections in 2011! Snerk.
I was ridiculously getting my hopes up about the Asimovs submission, and not because that story was on it's ninth pass through the traps. They took a little longer to reply, and I was all "Ohh! Maybe they're looking a little closer at it", when it was probably more "Hey, it's Christmas, things are a bit sluggish". Hey, a girl's gotta dream. One of these days I'll be published in Asimovs, and your little dog too! *shake fist*
I've been flip flopping between guilt and relief the last three weeks, because I haven't got any writing done. On one hand, it's been really nice to let the brain relax. On the other, I feel slowed down and lazy compared to many writers I see blogging and twittering about what they've been doing over the holidays. Another problem with taking an extended break from writing means I'm out of the swing of the routine, and I might have motivation problems getting back into it. Hey, I ALWAYS have motivation problems, so I don't know why I'd make it harder on myself. But I'm a masochist like that.
