Also, those of you who know me on Facebook might have seen my post today about firing off another submission as soon as you get a rejection letter. I wish writers wouldn't do this. Take some time after getting a rejection letter to go back to the journal or magazine (I trust EVERY writer who submits to Pulp Modern has read a copy!) and study it a little bit more before sending something else. When I send a rejection notice to a writer and receive another submission from him or her within 24 hours, I feel like the writer has a stack of stories he or she just sends out blindly hoping for a lucky strike. What actually happens is this: I feel disrespected and read all future submissions from that writer with a suspicious eye. I would not be surprised if other editors felt the same way.
