A Reminder - What Writers Produce Is Alive

I had fun imagining my stories and novels dancing with the works of Chekhov, King, Lispector, Achebe .... and my smile was huge. I hope this brought a smile to you too.

Short Stories and More

So the new year began. I had some time between real life projects, was waiting to hear from my readers about my novel, and could focus on my short stories. I opened up my short story folder, identified which short stories to send out, researched potential literary markets, and started submitting stories. At last count, I have about twenty queries sent. More will be submitted as time etc. permit.

The targeted literary reviews range from brand new to long established. Obviously, the probabilities of acceptance will differ. But, regardless of the publication’s pedigree, it is always uplifting to hear that someone likes what you have written. We'll see what the new year brings. I look forward to finding out.
