I was asked to replace a few f's and c's from my dialogue on one story.

Balls to that, it's your story.

My sentiments exactly.

I sense the potential for an interesting debate here!

Hmmm.....I'll be interested to see what others say, but it seems fairly straightforward to me: they say, "Take out the f's and c's or we won't publish it" and we have the choice of saying either, "Yeah, ok" or "Nah, stuff it!"

Confused

About right, I reckon, Val.

Editors know what they want in their publications and it's up to us, their suppliers, to provide them with the service they require. If we don't they will obviously take their custom elsewhere.
And why shouldn't they? It's not as if they owe us anything.

Congrats to you both. What would Bewildering Stories do without TWI eh? They'd be bereft of quality material.

Embarassed must admit my piece on bewildering is probably one of my least fave poems from ages past...i submitted a rag tag motley crew of pieces and was blown away to have them all accepted...

on the other hand, Donnas is i think awesome Very Happy
