Normally, I share a piece of fiction or poetry with you, but I decided to do something different today. I'd like to share with you how my writing is going. I tend to jot something down Wednesday morning and post it without much editing. However, I do take my writing seriously, and will attempt to at least edit from here on out. :)
I have had two pieces published this month... well, one is a craft post.
1 - A fiction piece I wrote, titled, At the Crossroads, was included in the Neokoroi summer newsletter/publication He Epistole. This is the second time I've sent something in and you can find a non-fiction piece in the spring edition. I'm going to continue to submit to He Epistole as long as I can think of ideas.
2 - A craft tutorial I wrote as a guest post for Craft Leftovers was featured on the Craft site. Yippee! Now I just need to make more to sell at a friend's shop.
I've submitted a couple different things this month and last month, and I'm still waiting to hear back from them. I've got another month to go.
1 - Lyrical Iowa. This is the publication put out by the Iowa Poetry Association. My submission was sort of a last minute thing, but I'm proud that I actually submitted something.
2 - Paper Crow. More poetry went to this magazine, partly because I love the name. The press that puts it out is called Elektrik Milk Bath Press. Isn't that awesome?
3 - A Rustle of Dark Leaves Anthology. I sent out a fiction piece to this at Misanthrope Press. And I just realized they did a Pagan themed anthology that I missed. Dang.
And a thing or two I'm working on.
1 - The Scribing Ibis: An Anthology of Pagan Fiction. I'm actually a little embarrassed and glad I looked at the guidelines again this morning. Some how I forgot that the piece was supposed to be about Pagans or gods and whatnot. Luckily I haven't sent in anything yet.
2 - Last but not least, I think I'm going to start pulling out my poetry and seeing if I have enough for a chapbook. At the very least, I need to start editing some of it so I have a body of work to draw from the next time I find a good place to submit to.
What are you working on?
