Well now what a day. Submitted a Flash Fiction piece of precisely 1000 words to two different online publishers. I also submitted my first Drabble to The Drabble. Apparently the ritual is to wait now and see what happens.
In the mean time, I won’t be waiting passively. NaNoWriMo starts Wednesday so I’m beginning prepare for that marathon. The goal is to write 50,000 words during the month of November in an effort to produce some or all of a novel. That’s 1667 words per day. I’ve got an idea I like and a bit of a framework for the story. I hope to attend some write-ins around town, too.
It’s been a good week. I’ve got my Twitter feed up and running with a decent number of followers already. I built this blog site (still some work to do). I am attending a local writer’s group (CSWriters). I’ve learned a lot about editing trying to trim the above-mentioned pieces down to size. Great exercise.
