By the Skin of my Teeth

I just managed to get my 2,200 word short story manuscript edited and polished for posting this week.

It's been a busy and eventful week with computer problems and demanding stuff, plus one rejection letter flopping onto the door mat.

How was it for you?

BTW See post below
I have added a couple more showing phrases. I also amended the closing date, since yesterday my brain said today when it meant Friday.


  1. Sorry to hear about the rejection letter :(

    But well done with polishing you short story :)

  2. Hi,

    Boo hiss at R, and good luck with the send-off!

    I'm waiting on reply to a partial, a full and a query. Not nuffink, yet. I'm braced for the worst, and if it's good news, then great! If not, there's always another day another manuscript. ;)


  3. Good luck with the short story - I hope it finds a home.

  4. Best of luck with the short story. The rejection? - their loss. Have a great weekend.

  5. You've done amazing to submit another short story! I hope it finds a home.

    Other than the 100-word sentence I haven't done anything yet. Time seems to be going at double-speed at the moment and also, I seem to be back to blogging more than writing again. Agh!

  6. Yay that you finished your story!! That's brilliant!!!!

    PC problems are not fun at all! :-(

    I'm sorry about the rejection letter. I hope all your stories find homes soon!! Take care

  7. Good job meeting your goals.

  8. Sorry about the rejection letter! But good job on finishing your short story. My week hasn't been as hectic as previous weeks (no one in my house is sick...okay a little bit of pink eye for my daughter who got it from a friend...but no projectile vomiting in the middle of the night, which I'm happy abou). The only thing I'm disappointed in, is I didn't get any furhter on revisions this week. But I have a good excuse: I read Across the Universe this week!

  9. Good luck with your short story!

    I'm sorry to hear about the rejection letter! But it's one closer to publication. :)

  10. I am so awesomely impressed with the Write 1 Sub 1 idea and all doing it! Sorry to hear about the rejection (boo! hiss!) but well done with your edit, and good luck with it!

  11. Well done you for another successful wri1sub1 week!
    I am failing at the Wri1Sub1 this week. I have a poem to send off, but haven't found the right place to send it to! My time has also been diverted to my collaborative ePocalypse story. I'll try and sort something tomorrow.


  12. I'm sorry about the rejection letter :( But, you managed to get another short in this week. That amazes me. I can't imagine doing that!

    And you're right; it's been a WEEK!

    Hope your weekend gets a lot better!
