It Looks the Same in the Box Score

November 20, 2012 § Leave a comment

I will admit I was getting hopeful. Recent Duotrope responses from a journal out of Tennessee:

23-day form rejection on November 16.
28-day form rejection on November 16.
41-day form rejection on November 16.
21-day form rejection on November 15.
41-day rejection from on November 14.
33-day rewrite request on November 13.
38-day form rejection on November 13.
41-day personal rejection on November 13.

Number of days my submission was out: 65. And then a form rejection on November 19.

Even better, from a journal out of Virginia:

9-day rejection on November 17.
17-day form rejection on November 17.
11-day form rejection on November 16.
9-day form rejection on November 16.

16-day form rejection on November 16.
17-day form rejection on November 16.
17-day form rejection on November 16.
14-day form rejection on November 13.
19-day form rejection on November 13.

30-day form rejection on November 4.
31-day rejection on November 4.
32-day form rejection on November 4.
32-day form rejection on November 4.
34-day form rejection on November 4.

Form rejected today, November 20. Days out: 50.

Was it being strongly considered, to be held as long as it was while all these others were rejected, some within two weeks? Did it make it to a later round? Or was it sitting in someone’s inbox all that time?

It doesn’t look any different in the box score. And I have come to terms with the fact that the story needs to go back to the drawing board.

But I am dying to know what its chances were.
