The life of the short-story writer can pretty much be boiled down to submitting as much as possible, as often as possible, in hopes that someone will publish your work. To that end, I’m going to start updating you monthly as to what’s out in print (or online), where I have stories under consideration, and what kind of writing I’ve done.
You know, that whole “accountability” thing.
So here goes:
Nothing this month. Sad times.
AE, Allegory, Analog, Angry Robot Books, Asimov’s, Automobilia, Compelling Science Fiction, Crossed Lines, Damsels in Success, Deep Magic, ECM, Electric Literature, Fox & Raven, Frostfire Worlds, Giganotosaurus, Grasslimb, Manor House, Pantheon, Persistent Visions, Read Short Fiction, Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities, Space Squid, Straeon, The Binge Watching Cure, The Stoneslide Corrective, Way of the Buffalo
STUFF I WROTE
I’ve almost hit 20,000 words on a book I’m writing under a pseudonym, due to its content. I’ve almost decided what’s going to happen in the climactic sequence.
I also finished the first draft of a new horror story about a guy who fetishizes being hospitalized. So there’s that.
I wrote seven columns this month — I like to stay ahead of my deadlines — including one about The X-Files and another about etiquette and manners.
THOUGHT FOR THE MONTH
