A few weeks ago, I sent my first ever short story submission to Clarkesworld, and it was rejected after two days. - Smashing, awesome... I can live with that. - The story was almost 7,000 words, and I'd realised they prefer a few less... A lot less.
So three weeks ago I decided to send it to Daily Science Fiction. - The Grinder suggests they've been rejecting in 9-10 days. - In my acknowledgement from them, they suggested it could take up to three weeks to respond.
It's three weeks today, and nothing!
I assume it is dead, but I am not prepared to simultaneously submit, so I guess I pull it in a day or two.
