Week 35! I was a submitting fool this week again, catching a few markets before they closed at the end of August. Total for August? Nine stories submitted and I wrote five. Not a bad way to wrap up the summer.
I also got my write 1 in for the week, another flash challenge assignment, which was:
Sci Fi / A luxury spa / a wig
This actually gave me more to work with–maybe too much more, since it came in at ~ 2,000 words. But I really liked where the story was going and I’m not one to look a gift story in the mouth.
No rejections or acceptances this week, but one of the stories I sent out did make the first round cut for an anthology. Now it’s simply a matter of waiting. Fortunately, that was one of the skills I perfected in the Army.
- Inside Out ~ 2,000 words
- Ghost in the Coffee Machine ~ short listed
- Straying from the Path
- The Patron Saint of Lost Things
