The Writing Life

Logged a couple of rejections this week, both for stories that are very good but hard to find a home for. I may need to start throwing one of them toward horror markets. May be a better fit there.

On the other side, I received my check and my contract from Strange Horizons (Oh, how I love SH, sending a check *with* the contract, and stamping the SAE! Near and dear to my heart). At least half of all my writing money from now on goes into savings, so there's another $70 toward the moving fund.

Working on God's War today while I format CDs for the day job.

3 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

Keep the faith, Kam; you'll get it done. :)

Just curious about going towards the horror market--why do you think it would be a better fit? Are you familiar with that market at all?

Is your article up on Strange Horizons yet? I've been trying to keep an eye out for it.

Steph - there's a listing of which markets take horror at, and there's always a list of anthologies that indicates if they're interested in horror as well. What's mainly holding this story back is the length (over 10K), and the fact that I'm not famous.

Scott - I'll announce here when the story's up at SH...
