Well, I finally did it. I submitted my first short story to The New Yorker magazine. I know it’s a long shot, but hey, go big or go home. I will let you know when I get the rejection letter.
Actually, they don’t send a rejection letter. If they don’t accept your story within 90 days, they simply don’t get back to you. Kind of like the Seattle freeze. It ought to be called The Seattleite magazine. If it were a true New Yorker rejection, they’d probably say something like: “Hey, palooka, your story stinks. Get outta here.”
Anyway, gotta start somewhere. Have a good weekend everybody!
