Everyday Weirdness

Yesterday I arrived home and checked my email to find two new messages (yes, only two). One was from L.B. Goddard, co-editor of the Devil’s Food antho, advertising her appearance later on The Odd Mind blogtalk radio show (which I forgot to listen to live). While reading that message I noticed who sent the other email: Everyday Weirdness. I then opened that email and upon seeing only two lines of text, figured that I had been rejected. Then I actually read the text and was surprised to learn that my story, In The Dog House, was accepted for today. Read it HERE.

In other news, I’ve had a second story enter triple digit days while waiting for a response. The first was the horrid story Dark Recesses rejected after 177 days. Now, my piece for the Time in a Bottle antho, The Transcendental Man, has just reached 102 days. I’m wishing I had a time machine myself so I go forward and see what the result for that story is going to be.

Triple digit submissions seems to be a theme today. Congrats on the acceptance, heading over to read it now.

Great story (in a weird sort on way, of course). I enjoyed the escalation of odd happenings through the week. Being a former animal control officer, I often wondered if the dogs would hunt me down.--Alan

487 days about counting is my record so far. One of the first flash stories I ever wrote!

I liked your story. And I like what I imagine your dogs look like. Rock on!

Congrats! I always knew dogs were a lot smarter than I gave them credit for...

Okay, that was awesome. :) I suspect my cats of working on something similar.

I'm glad my dog is stupid and my cats don't give a fig.

Excellent story!
