Novel: 525 words. Chapter 3 done.

Received a rejection for the serial novel idea i’d subbed almost 3 weeks ago, which is the novel i’m now working on. I’m glad, in many ways. I’ve decided this is a serious novel, not an experiment, and if it had been accepted i’d have only displayed the first chapter. I’d actually thought about withdrawing the sub for the above reason (and a couple others, which i won’t discuss here because talking about them now, after the rejection has been received, could be wrongly construed), but had decided to see what happened. It’s rare to get a rejection that you’re happy with, but this certainly qualifies.

Full steam ahead, then.

Also had a very intriguing idea this morning. I know the advice of a lot of writers is to ignore ideas had while sleeping, but this could be a right corker. And it still made logical sense half an hour after i woke up. Not strictly SF, but i could have a lot of fun with it, i think.
