Postscript

Another flash acceptance, this time for a flash called Porn is like Pot Noodle, from a cool new venue, Red Peter. I can't wait to see how he illustrates the story. Also I get to send a snooty withdrawal notice to the buggers who've had that submission since January and ignored my polite chasing emails.

Aha, I presume that this might be you that Vanessa mentions in her blog. Congrats, firstly! And second, I have just withdrawn a submission from two journals who took months and months - and neither of them even acknowledged the withdrawal! Honestly, if you are going to take the time to set up a literary magazine, can't you even take the time for some common courtesy to those who think your publication is worthy of them sending their creative babies to?
Have a great holiday!

Thanks, Tania. Petty of me, perhaps, but I took great satisfaction in writing the withdrawal notice. *g*

Congrats Sarah. I'll have to check out Red Peter.

While we're sharing withdrawls - how's this: had decent email exchange with Ed when buying a copy of the mag. Sent in story. Heard nothing. No replies to my polite chasing. Emailed (after bloody months) to withdraw. Received confirmation of withdrawl within the hour. Honestly!

Excellent, Nik. Yes, much better thanks. On the antibiotics still but driving again and sounding chipper when I spoke with him a day or so ago. How about you?

Oh that's good news. I'm MUCH better, thanks. Almost fighting fit!
