So, this week I played around with a bit of short, short fiction, just for fun. I transcribed a story I had longhand in my notebook into electronic form and did a little brainstorming on how to expand on it.
No submissions this week, but two rejections, one for a story that was rejected a few months back–by the same market.
Uh, yeah. They weren’t sure if they’d sent the rejection, so they sent it again. But! It was a nice rejection, letting me know that the story came oh, so close, and would I like to submit again when they reopen for submissions. So, yeah, it beats a sharp stick in the eye and all that.
Otherwise, I’m gearing up for the release of The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet. Part of that includes releasing The Trouble with Prom, which has two original YA short stories and the first four chapters of The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet.
- The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet ~ proofing. layout, etc.
- Nano fiction ~ three short, just for fun “Twitter” fictions.
- The Longest Night of the Year ~ from notebook into electronic form, some revision work.
- Abandonment Issues
- Redacted ~ two rejections, one submission! Milestone!

You motivate me so much. I tell you I have been on whirlwind these last few days with my writing. I make a schedule and then don’t stick to it. SMH…I need to be slapped, but I am writing everyday so that counts for something.
Oh, glad to hear you’re writing every day. What helps me is to get away from the internet (which can be hard if you use your computer for both writing *and* the internet). I hope you’re having a productive week!
I’m trying too! Thanks
