OOC : A curiosity, a whine.

(This is all OOC.) I don't often submit things for publication. (I dunno what, if anything, to do with the Herethroy Love Story Novel That Needs A Title, but that's a harder question.) But an ezine I heard about had an interesting theme: write a 300-word excerpt from a nonexistant work, to be published as a fragment. Inspired by the fragments of the Necronomicon and the King in Yellow, I presume. They didn't have to be fiction, or even in any extant language.

So I tossed together a bit of oddness. I should have known better: I am allergic to the very name of the ezine. Anyways, it got rejected. There's not a lot of other market for such things, so here it is... afterwards, there's an angsty little survey.

[OOC: Grr! This was gonna be an actual poll, but I couldn't persuade that to work either.] So what should I do about this? Write more stuff like that (or other views of alienness) and post to LiveJournal? Try again at the allergic ezine? Put non-Sythry stuff in the bard_bloom account, and keep sythyry for Sythyry? Write more Sythyry and things like that? Apologize to the bunnies? Stop moping and whining?
