I submitted my first round piece “Ruthless Efficiency” (first place) to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine.  I have a piece coming out with them in about six weeks, so I was very hopeful they’d want another one.  Got my rejection letter last week on day 67 since submittal.  Their average time to reject a story is 19 days, so I know it was heavily considered.  The editor said she enjoyed reading and was especially impressed with the creativity of the story, but it’s not a good fit for what they need right now.  Luckily, today I found a place that pays almost as good as EQ that’s looking for stories of that length, so I’ll be giving them a shot as well.  I believe it’s good enough to hold out for a paid market.

Depends on the story. I really liked my round 1 story, I'll revise it and submit it around. I have some stories from past contests I've been submitting. And some stuff that was contest-ok, but totally not my genre and it'll just kind of sit in my iCloud. :)
