My eligible works for 2018 (for nomination in 2019)
All fine and dandy like cotton candy! …Until I suddenly had a major problem.
My novelette Still Life went live at GigaNotoSaurus! Along with MY FIRST SOLO REVIEW!
Yesterday I hit a milestone: 100 queries sent so far this year!
Livingstone and Weekday’s adventures AS THEY ARE WRITTEN: A Journey from inside THE WRITER’S MIND
Life continues post Pitch Wars and it’s inspired me to start a new series: So How Goes Trying To Get Published, Victoria
Updates and new Free to Read Fiction (Shadowboard!)
My anticipation is making me antsy, but it’s not because I am anticipating being a mentee. Rather, the opposite.
Some days the rejections don’t even bother me. Some days I see the notification and the first two lines “Dear Victoria…” and I let out strangled wookiee noises and regret giving up wheat/sugar.
Getting back a lot of beta-reading comments can be discouraging enough, but it’s nothing like opening up a “finished” story that you’ve edited/workshopped until your eyes bled only to find it’s a yarn-basket of Word comments.
