Writing stuff

"Blonde Bimbos on the Moon" has been rejected again. I should find another place to send it, and send it out again.

Tonight I did a few small edits on Mysterious Paris and printed off the entire novel. I'm going to circulate it among my writing group. Nobody but me has read the whole thing yet. Before I do my next revision (which will likely be a major effort), I want to get opinions on the work as a whole.

Yeah, I'm trying to submit things more often now, and I'm already seeing the rejection slips come pouring in. I guess I'll have to steel myself to it.

Keep sending it out, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I've received a number of rejections. Some are just form, but others are encouranging - people who were entertained by the story but didn't feel it fit their publication.

BTW, I find http://www.duotrope.com helpful for finding potential markets.

I'm glad you're getting some more personalized feedback, then. All I've gotten so far from my recent submissions are form rejections.

I'm using that site now, too. Much easier than looking through a book for markets.

I got to tell you, I REALLY admire the way you've worked on your book and have sent it out. My 'I Fran' gathers more and more dust. Huge kudos to you my dear!

No, I haven't sent my book out yet..... "Blonde Bimbos on the Moon" is a short story. Although it is a rewrite of my first nanowrimo attempt!

Keep your chin up!
Its a horrible market out there even for good stories. There were a lot of makets closed last year and that just makes it tougher. Having read a LOT of submissions via the site my friend and I set up (Speculative) I can tell you that there are a huge amount of well written stories making the rounds.

Just keep submitting :D
