A quick update on where I’m at.
TMWSE—When last we heard about this work (a horror short story), it was 3,500 words and I was on Chapter 3 of 5. Now, I’m about half way through Chapter 4 (the climax), and it’s about 5,200 words. So…I have to knock off the rest of Chapter 4 and then do the wrap-up chapter 5. The good thing is that I already have both chapters mapped out in my mind and I just have to bang it out this weekend.
Hopefully, this will be the weekend it gets done. Keep your fingers crossed.
Breakpoint—After 3 previous rejections, this is off to the next magazine. It’s been there for about 10 days, so it’s just getting started in the slush piles. My last two stories got 7 and 8 rejections, respectively. So, this Baby has a ways to go.
AFTA—This manuscript is with some publishing houses that accept simultaneous submissions. No news yet back from them. I’ll keep you posted.
See you next time,
