Another Polite Rejection
My short story, "Can't Be Happy Today, But Tomorrow," has been declined by The First Line. It's somewhat of a special purpose piece that's unlikely to get published elsewhere, so I've put it up on my Writings page.
Unlike last time, I'm having a bit of trouble shaking this one off. I was really pleased with this story and thought it had a good chance for acceptance. That makes two up and two down. The next TFL first line is "The inside is dark," which seems pretty vague, enough so that I'm not sure whether or not it will inspire another story from me.
