Wow. I am just so indie. Looking for writing contests, listening to Beirut, sitting on a bench saved from the dump, and drinking out of a vintage tea-stained mug. We’ll ignore my apple earbuds and my notebook that came from Target.
(That was sarcasm. If you didn’t catch on)

That was me two weeks ago looking for a publication to submit my short story Fog Ridden to. I have to say, there are two lessons that I learned while searching this time around.

One: if you plan on writing and looking for publications…always write first. Looking through loads of magazines and e-zines is not inspiring.

Two: If you quit a story, but still like it…hold on to it. I originally write Fog Ridden in 2011. I was….thirteen?
Yes. Fog-Ridden came a long way. I wrote, rewrote it, I think rewrote it again, started to turn it into a novel, then quit. And once again, I edited it (with help of course) and it is now complete at last.
That’s all for know folks.

  1. Ew you hipster (she scoffed from her thrifted vintage armchair while “Cliquot” plays in the background) ;)
    In all seriousness though, your two pieces of advice are so true…
