Sleep rejected, submitted

Had Sleep shot down in very short order by ASIM, which doesn’t surprise me too much.  It’s a tough story to find a good market for because it isn’t quite spec fic, even if it did get once picked up for a dark comedy anthology.  I’ve sent it back out the door, this time trying an audio market.

Because I’ve realized one thing.  Short stories are like children.  You need to raise them, make sure they’re ready for the world, but at a certain point you need to kick them out the door and tell them to get a job!  I’ve got three out right now, I’m going to try and get a fourth in the form of Div!0 in circulation.  Because short stories’ll never get bought just sitting on my hard drive.

Nanowrimo starts tomorrow.

2013 deadline is FAST approaching (Friday, people, Friday) so I’ll probably have to pass on it, since I don’t even really have a concept.  Two more deadlines looking better and added to a calendar over there on the right hand tool bar.  Yay, calendars.

Unleaded quickie, Nanowrimo

New post up at Unleaded featuring SMBC and me…well, linking right back here again.

Next Monday marks the beginning of Nanowrimo.  This year I’ll be missing a big chunk of the month as I’m heading to New Orleans for a cruise to celebrating the wedding of the proprietors of the Unleaded Blog (yay!).  That means that the standard 50,000 word goal is out the window.  But here’s the thing.  I wouldn’t really want to anyway.  I feel like I’m less than 50,000 words from the end of Capsule, and that trying to put that many more words into it would be contrived.  And I sure as hell don’t want to start anything new, no matter how much I’ve been thinking about a plotline I’m currently calling “The Filibuster” (based on the old definition…shameless 200 Years cross-link).  So here’s my Nanowrimo goal:

Maintain Nano pace on any day that I’m not on vacation until I get to the end of Capsule.  Then work on editing, oh dare I even say it?  End of the Line.

Also, came up with an odd idea for a flash fiction piece that I’m hoping to write and post here in the blog by the end of the month.  Yay, flash fiction!
