These days, I secretly look forward to and enjoy stories outside my guidelines. Because it's a quick rejection and delete and a tick off the list. Love them!
My current favourites:
- stories set on Earth in the current time period for New Ceres
- stories with no young adult characters *at all* submitted to Shiny
Yes, there is a hidden message in here to carefully read guidelines before you submit to calls for submission - otherwise you are just wasting everyone's time.
