Last night I finished my 17th short story (in ten months). It is a fantasy piece (alt. earth) and it reached 3000 words in the end. After my last post, I decided not to mention titles and other specific details of unpublished pieces, because – who knows? – they might end up submitted to WOTF or another contest which requires anonymity, so my stories’ particulars shouldn’t be all over the Internet.
Well, this makes for a much less interesting post, but it’s better than eventually getting disqualified. The good thing is that now I have my 17th story, and my newer ones definitely look much more promising. We’ll see how it goes — if this gets published, of course, I will be telling you a lot more about it.
