Last year as part of the brief insanity that was 'I'll Never Get Published Legimately But Maybe I Could Get Somewhere In Competitions', I entered an erotic story for an anthology.

I know, I'm not a good erotic writer and those things are all purple prose and giant spurting love meat bullshit. But I figured since I was making an idiot of myself trying to get somewhere writing I might at least do it comprehensively.

So, the date for submission was sometime in July. Last July. And I was told 'I'll be reading for the anthology over the next few weeks, and I hope to get back to  everyone by the middle of August.' Pretty clear, yes? I should hear by August.

In September having heard nothing I politely emailed saying that I figured they'd decided not to use my story but could they please confirm. They replied that they were still in the process of reading the submitted stories. Bit rude not to have told people that, I thought, but okay.

In October - three months after submission and two months after they initially said they'd get back to us - they emailed saying, guess what, they were still reading submissions.

It's now the end of January and I wandered over to the website out  of random vaguely masochistic curiosity and guess what?

They've extended the submission time for the anthology to March and are calling for more submissions.

Calling for more submissions. After stringing everyone along for months they're now taking more submissions. I do not even know what to say to that.
