Day 1 of 3...

This week I'm taking three days off work (Monday thru Wednesday) for the sole purpose of kickstarting my writing. Here's how I spent day one...

Morning:
-Read and edited 2007 science fiction short story, The Bug in the Suit (6520 words)
-1 submission

Afternoon:
-Read and edited 2006 flash fiction, No Place for a Pink Angel (960 words)
-2 submissions

I spent a lot of time today trying to find respectable homes for The Bug in the Suit and The Manny Prior Halloween Show. At 6520 and 7850 words respectively, it did not prove easy! Further proof, if it was needed, that short stories should come in at 5000 words MAX.

See you tomorrow.
