    Never Enough.

    I quote this Cure song all the time to my boyfriend when he jokingly accuses me of being high maintenance. The rejection slips I've received are either flat and cold or are telling me they just don't have enough space. There's never enough space. -Endless Meghan

    Already Am

      In fact, I usually have something published at least once a month.  What I'd really like, though, it have something that finds its way to the New York Times bestseller list.

    Horror Markets?

    It seems a lot of magazines that publish short horror are on backlog. And there aren't a lot of magazines that seem to publish short fiction without being an established writer anymore. An endless struggle this seems. -Endless
