The Abysmal Brutes

When Should You Give Up On Your Story?

September 27, 2019

Sitting in your email inbox is the thirty-sixth rejection for “King Kang Lives!” You sent it to every short story magazine and anthology the submission database offered. Some have received the story twice after a couple of rewrites. What the Hell is wrong with them? What the Hell is wrong with your story?  Is it time to put it in the Trunk with the other rejects? The Abysmal Brutes mull these questions over in their latest episode.  All you need is one magazine, one editor, one reader to believe in your story.
