You see those lists to the right of my blog? I wanna make 'em longer.
In particular, the 'Waiting to hear back from' section - this is for places I've sent stories to which are being judged/considered.
If a piece is accepted it will be moved into the 'Coming Soon' list, and then the 'My stories appear in' bit.
It's quite a good, simple, motivational tool for me. A kind of reminder to keep things moving and flowing, especially as I'm not really working on any new stuff this week.
But I am looking over old stories and seeing (immediately in most cases) how they need to be edited and re-worked into something publishable.
Along with this, I'm looking at new places to sub, big and small.
So today's new thing I found: a neat little place that only publishes stories that are 6 sentences long. I had an interesting time re-working an already written story made of 13 sentences into one made of 6.
I realise that this could be obvious to the editors when they read it, so it will be interesting to see if they go for it. They promise a reply in 6 days, so I'll let you very soon.
