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

  1. At least you are trucking along and getting things done. Good for you! What is your overall goal with your writing?

  2. Congratulations on the acceptance!

  3. Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing the story, so this makes it double plus good.

  4. Overall goal for my writing? Mainly, to have fun (no, really, I’m serious about that). But the other goal for this year is to build up a body of work. I’ve missed writing short stories so I’m working to get them back into my (writing) life.

  5. That’s great charity. I know that you can do it!
