One of the two stories I finished this morning--the 3,700-word noir crime fiction story--has already sold. About three hours after I e-mailed it to the magazine I received a contract.
This is one of those right-place-right-time sales because the editor is going to use the story in the issue being put together right now.
This is my 10th acceptance of the year. I'm averaging an acceptance every 4.6 days.
