Sadly, yes, this is based on a real conversation I had with someone who believes “nobody” actually reads science fiction. Apparently I don’t know my market and there’s not really anyone reading the hundreds of magazines that accept stories like mine. Not to mention that “everyone” doesn’t exactly relate to romance, thanks.

What’s surprising is how often people who don’t know much about publishing markets are willing to unload stunning wisdom about how they work, and how consistently they think anyone who doesn’t believe them is “in denial” or “refusing to listen to criticism.”

I did not apply your “criticism” because you were completely wrong about who I’m writing for, not because I can’t handle feedback. Thanks.
