Nice rejection

Last fall I tried to expand my horizons and I sent a short story off to "The New Yorker", They sat on it for about four and a half months. I got a form rejection last week, but the editor wrote on it at the bottom "'Catch a Falling Star' is an enjoyable story - not right for us, though. Thanks for the submission."

That's somewhat of an encouragement, I guess.

Slush Pile Mambo

Right now I have a dozen short stories sitting in various slushpiles awaiting decisions, and eight stories accepted and pending publication...
