Since I missed the deadline for WotF, which was June 30, I decided to try Baen's Universe. So the story's going to get tied up for a while again. At least I've got a few months before the September deadline for WotF.
If it bounces both places, I'll have to start looking at viable semi-pro markets or whether I need to trunk the piece. It's such a bummer writing stuff that people don't want to buy. Especially when each project ends up being a longer piece, either novel length or a mosaic made from shorter works.
Such is the other side of the writing life.
