Not much new to report since my last one other than I’m getting in my daily 500 word average just fine. For the past few days, all have been written for the same short story for my anthology. I’m half tempted to remove it from the anthology and expand it into novella length to submit on its own. I’m very pleased with it and see so many places I could take it forward and other places I could flesh it out more.
Within the next day or so, I will submit my March “contest” piece for consideration. I have 2 Feb contests still pending judges’ decisions. One had its deadline extended into March.
I’m counting down to 3/7/11, when I’ll have a short story published in an e-zine. Woot! Not a paying market…not yet…but one day, I hope. Perhaps if I subbed more often than once every fourth or fifth month and stopped self-pubbing on my blog… Oops. Oh well, if my blog readers are enjoying the fruits of my writing exercises, that’s not so bad. I don’t know if this is a small-scale mindset I have to get past or if I’m just lazy about picking a market, then writing for that market. I suspect my contest goal for round 1 will morph into a submission goal for round 2.
