Write 1/Sub 1 check in: week 31 the one with the surprise acceptance

Week 31! This week, I conclusively proved that staring at your submission tracker does not make editors respond faster. I stared at that thing all week long, and it wasn’t until Friday that I received any type of response.

Of course, one of those responses was an acceptance from Kazka Press for their Sax & Violins (and Other Tales of Music) issue. And seriously, I was not expecting this. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t pleased. I’ll write a bit more about it when it goes live on the Kazka Press site later this week. It’s a combination Write 1/Sub 1 and the Writer’s Regimen story.

Writing:

  • Shadow Creatures ~3,500 words. Mind you, this is not the story title, just a placeholder to remind me what the story is about. Apparently, it is about shadow creatures; that could change.
  • Blog post challenge

Submissions:

  • Breaking Plans ~ New story out this week.

Rejections:

  • Alliance

Acceptances:

  • The Girl with the Piccolo ~ Kazka Press
