Other than trying to work and all that, I recently had a short, flash fiction piece accepted in the Fall 2012 issue of From the Depths from Haunted Waters Press. That is exciting and I’ll let you know when it is published. It was from a contest I entered and it is a mere 13 words long.
I am also working on a short story that I wrote recently. It needs cleaning up, a few eyes other than my own and all that but I do like it. It is called Weight Watcher and look for it to come out soon.
I had a wonderful friend, who is also a writer, look at my rough draft and she had some great constructive criticism. It also gave me a few ideas as well as it allowed me to see where the holes were in my story. I’m so glad she looked at it because it sure needs work. However, I think the premise is great, I just need to work on the execution. It may be a little while till I get back to it but now I have clear direction on which way to move forward and that kind of advice is priceless.
I have a rough draft of my new story but I think I’ll let a couple of people read it before I do anything with it. What I’d love to do is submit it to some kind of anthology. That’s my dream – to be in something like Hot Blood or some kind of horror anthology. I can’t say what kind of anthology or I’d give away the ending. Anyway, if one of you wants to read the rough draft just let me know and keep in mind, it’s not done. However, at least you’ll have the general idea and can give me some constructive criticism. Right now, the name is The Bunker.
