Thanks for reading the Sentient Rejection Letter! Each week I’ll share an update from my life writing and publishing fiction, discuss a speculative fiction trend, and talk about my favorite recent story. Let’s go! When is a story finished? Sometimes when a story is rejected, I’ll revisit it, and make some revisions. I’m trying to stop this. Not because my artistic vision and confidence have been shaken by a form rejection but because it shouldn’t be so easy to improve the story at this stage.
