No Happily Ever Afters


Strike Princess Number Two from the race - she was rejected this morning. So, one anthology, four princesses, and not one of my girls made it. Ah, the shame! They were not Gothic enough, methinks. Still, it was worth a shot or two or four, and it was good for my royal layabouts to get out of their hard drive palaces and loiter in the Real World for a while. Now I'll tuck two of them away again (sssh, into the bottom drawer they go) and the other two - I haven't given up on them yet, especially not my steampunk princess - will have to face the multiple glares of a few more editors before I question their worthiness.
