So what’s happened so far?

REJECTIONS:- I’ve had 80 rejections so far.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS:- In the pipeline is the publications of “Uncle Ping’s Evening Farewell” from Insignia. Still no official date on this.

Ray Bradbury Challenge, Week 37.

10 Sep

Just finished this weeks Bradbury Challenge story, 1148 words.

It was an idea I had two weeks ago but didn’t really have an ending for so I didn’t do anything with it at the time. I didn’t even write the outline down. So this idea has survived in my head for two weeks, 14 sleeps.

So it must have been worth finally writing if I remembered it that long after writing so many new piece in the meantime, too.

Ending isn’t super great but not terrible either. I’m satisfied that it’s as good as I could come up with.

———–

It’s also worth noting I got an answer back from Third Flatiron Publishing, a polite rejection. Never mind.

And another submission!

21 Jul

2nd story submission out in as many days.
This time off to Third Flatiron Publishing.
I hope they like it.
