Learn from my mistake.
Yesterday, I submitted a story to Coach's Midnight Diner that was a reprint from 2009.
So what did I do wrong?
In scouring the site for the word "reprint," I completely missed the word in the guidelines: Unpublished.
So remember. Follow guidelines like a religion and remember that "reprint" and "unpublished" are two words that form just two sides of the same coin.
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!
