24-day personal rejection from Escape Pod for “Diver:”

“Dear Allison,

Thank you for sending “Diver” to Escape Pod. We enjoyed this story, but unfortunately, it’s not quite right for us. We wish you the best in finding this a good home and look forward to your next submission.

This story was well-written, and full of delightfully unique ideas, but the swimming/Diving analogy felt too direct and literal for our tastes. We loved it as a metaphor, but the analogy stopped working for us when both tasks used the same skills and even the same swimsuits.”
