"Sacrifices"

I finished the rewrite today. Going to give it to the writing group tonight if they'll have it. I subbed "Mother of Exiles" two weeks ago, looking for cut advice. No matter what, I'm happier with the story flow. I played with the tense again, trying to make the shifts less obvious.

So, hopefully I'll have something to send out into the world early December. F&SF first, and then possibly Fantasy after that. This isn't an SF story, so it's definitely not right for Asimovs or Analog. Or even Interzone or Baen's, which are two other markets I'd like to crack. Perhaps Strange Horizons. Or even IGMS, since I bumped into its editor Sunday night after WFC and he commented how he likes dark fiction.

Thanks for the reminder. :-)

I rememer thinking that when I saw it was opening, but that was at least a week or so ago, so of course it slipped my mind. ;-)

Every good thought helps. I'm looking forward to feedback from the writing group. I'm getting to the point where I have good ideas, but I think I still need to run stuff through at least three versions. Trying to take the submission/rejection process a little slower so I'm less likely to get rejections.

And I seriously need to map stuff out better. So seriously need it.
