Well, I really ought to be sleeping, but I needed to tell everyone my great news. Golden Visions has picked up my flash story . . . can't remember the name now -- oh, I thinkImage via Wikipedia it is the Goodbye. Publication to be in Feb with a bit of a token ($5) payment. Yay, me!
I did lose the writing contest, but just by a hair. I submitted three poems (two sonnets and a rondel) to Coyote Wild. Love those meter and rhyme poems. Why do free verse when you can mash around some words to make a story.
In other news, I wrote a short story of about 3000 words, but it has a plot problem so I'm letting it rest. If any like crits, I'm open to trading.
I also saw that Harlequin Historical is looking for 10,000-15,000 electronic submitted stories for their website. They need to be "hot" so that's what I'm going to be working on for the next few days. Already got a plot, like the hero, not so much the heroine. Hm, she'll need work.
I've always been sick lately, but it's a long story full of doctors, prescriptions, and probably a gigantic dose misunderstanding.
Well, that's all I have now. Maybe I'll post a rant or two when I wake up.
These are for me to check out later. ;)
