The Danger Zone

“The Danger Zone” is what I call it when a market has responded to stories that were submitted more recently than the story I’ve submitted there. It’s when I start looking for the rejection email. Prior to that, I figure it’s too soon for them to have looked at my story.

“One Final Gift” entered The Danger Zone at IGMS today. I like that story, but a rejection won’t surprise me. Rejections are the norm.
