MFRs and other tidbits

Still sick. Bleaggh. But much better than Patrick pointed out last night, any time I'm actually too sick to even update my journal, that's really saying something!

Sadly, yesterday I got two MFRs in my email (Most Frustrating Rejections)--one from a cool Pro magazine and one from a Respectable Semipro. Both of them said nice things about my stories, and both of them asked me to submit more. I find myself remarkably torn about this. On the one hand, that's really great to hear. (Obviously.) On the other hand, when I read those messages, I got so frustrated! Not that I want to go back to form rejects, of course...but darn it, I'd love to just sell a story.

Ah well. Temper tantrum over. Immaturity curbed (for the moment, anyway). At least I am feeling better (and someday I'll even be able to hear out of my left ear again, hurrah!).

And a quick note to everyone: my email is currently being swamped by "Microsoft" spam (or rather, spam claiming to be from Microsoft, though it's not really). I'm getting it at a rate of literally 2 (with huge attachments) every ten minutes this morning, which means that every ten minutes, my mailbox is filled by them up to (last time) 125%!!! So I'm emptying them out as quickly as possible...but if anybody's tried to send me a real email and had it bounced back because of my spam-full box, please be patient and try again!
