Weekly writing check-in: the one with the sneak peek

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.

Writing Work:

  • 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.

Submissions:

  • None

Rejections:

  • Abandonment Issues
  • Redacted ~ two rejections, one submission! Milestone!

Acceptances:

  • None

Publications:

KindleThe Trouble with PromNookKobo, Smashwords

Weekly writing check-in: the one with a busy weekend

Another short update today, since I’m in recovery mode from even more Scout-related activities this weekend. The short version: We. Are. Tired.

Got my writing in, and I’m up and over the 80,000-word mark in The Time After. I’m not really sure how that happened (other than the obvious: open a word processing document and start typing). One rejected this week, and one story short-listed (fingers-crossed on that one).

And you know what, guys? That’s all I got for the week.

Writing Work:

  • The Time After ~5,707 words

Submissions:

  • None

Rejections:

  • Breaking Plans

Acceptances:

  • None

Publications:

  • None
