Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!


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In scouring the site for the word "reprint," I completely missed the word in the guidelines: Unpublished.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 Follow guidelines like a religion and remember that "reprint" and "unpublished" are two words that form just two sides of the same coin.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!
