Strange Rejection

I got a story rejection today.  That's hardly noteworthy save for the fact I didn't realize I had any stories pending anywhere.  With my health problems and other distractions, I haven't done any writing in a while.  So, when I was rejected I started wondering. What the heck?  I didn't remember the anthology or what I'd sent them. So, after some time, I figured out it was for a project I'd submitted to over a year ago.  Wow, ain't that a timely response.   The projects I edit almost always get a reply within a month.  A year, a whole blasted year.  And they wonder why writers are insane.

Another reason I don't get rejected much is most of my stories are accepted.  There are a lot of reasons for why a story is rejected.  Most recently my last reject was because they didn't want male authors.  They didn't disclose that or I wouldn't have bothered.  You just never know. It's a very fickle business.
