I realize now that I may have jumped the gun a bit sending out my latest story (“In Plain Sight”). I went ahead and submitted it to a magazine in New Zealand without waiting to get some vital feedback from one of my readers. The feedback most likely would have immensely improved my story, and now I regret my impatience. At this point, I’m going to make my edits, and then contact the magazine and see about withdrawing my previous draft and substituting it for this one. Normally, I wouldn’t do that, but since this magazine’s a startup and this is their first issue, they may be more inclined than many to accept that arrangement. In any case, I’ve learned a little lesson about patience and its virtues.
