Writing Update – July 29, 2011

This has been an interesting week for me, as far as writing goes. Not only did I send out Feel-Good to the early access list and open preorders (you should buy it!), but I also submitted more of my writing to outside markets and had my first accepted story published.

The story I had published was a Twitter-length “nanofiction” at Nanoism. Here’s a link to the story on the Nanoism site, and here it is on Twitter. Nanoism was at the forefront of the Twitter fiction “boom,” and it’s one of the few venues for Twitter-length fiction that I know of that’s still operating. It’s great to have a venue for a unique format like this.

I’ve also had a flash fiction story declined twice this week (it was done personally, both times), and received some helpful feedback in the process.

I touched up the rejected story a bit and submitted it elsewhere, so I now have five stories “out there” waiting for responses.

My writing this week has been fairly productive. I finished a short story I’m really excited about, responded to several different prompts on TypeTrigger, and wrote the first week’s worth of 50-word stories for the start of Year Three at FiftyWordStories.com next week.

Hopefully next week brings some good news, in the form of more productivity and acceptances!

  1. Congratulations for the acceptance I hope more are in the pipeline but I know good criticism helps to become stronger in the art.
