200 CCs: Year One

Apparently, this is my week for stories coming out, because my first ever paid published story “Bruises” has just been re-released in 200 CCs’ Year One Anthology! It looks like a great collection and I am really excited to be a part of it. What a lovely way to end the year.

Another W1S1 Success!

After nearly five months of weekly submissions during my Write 1 Submit 1 challenge, I got another story accepted by a paying publication! I wrote my flash fiction story “The Mists” during the September edition of Story-A-Day and submitted it at the end of last month to three publications. Within the same day, Fantasia Divinity Magazine accepted my piece!

I am so excited that “The Mists” (after a bit of editing) will be featured in Fantasia Divinity Magazine’s January Issue. As with my previous published story “Bruises,” I am keeping track of the rights the publisher asked for and payment promised. I would urge anyone submitting stories (or novels) to keep a list of who they submitted to, the expected wait time (if given) and the submission date. Also, to cross out the publications/agents as the rejections come in, as painful as that is. I found this really helps me stay organized and streamlines the submission process a lot. I keep a handwritten list, do you have a method that works for you? Let me know in the comments!
