Slingink and Writing Submissions

Slingink and Writing Submissions

ulpG or even Gulp

I have just submitted 5 poems and 2 short short stories to 3 different publishers (no duplicate submissions though – that’s just the total).

Will let you know about acceptances or rejections. And I may send out some more.

Decided to end 2010 as I want to go into 2011. Productive.

Have signed up to THE STIRRED POeT 2011 starting Jan on The Write Idea to help with this – a six round poetry competition.

This comes hot on the heels of Slingink Scribbling Slam

– a six round poetry and/or fiction compeition that I ran over on Slingink with masses of help, for which I am very grateful, from the two judges, for poetry Mandy Pannett and for fiction Nik Perring. Obviously I didn’t officially enter but I submited my poems (I managed 6 new ones) and stories (I managed 4 new ones and submitted 2 I’d previously written) anonymously for comments. I was so chuffed that I would have won one poetry round and come second in one fiction round so those are a couple of the pieces I have sent out today.

I’m sorry to say that due to a manic end of work (which I am now not at for two weeks over Christmas) I’m behind with editing the second edition of Slingink All Shorts though I am determined to get it finished (ideally before Christmas, definitely before the end of December).

Who else is on a mad submission rush at the end of 2010?

Good luck

In January I am going to look at my NaNoWriMo novel again. I’m already thinking of writing a sequel for NaNoWriMo 2011.

I don’t think I mentioned that I have submitted a few stories to a charity anthology (Write to Fight) to support a fellow writer’s karate club. This should be out shortly so I’ll add a link to it when its available.

2 Rounds Down

Well, I got my round 2 fiction entry in on time, just. Word count was around 2,300 with a maximum allowance of 2,500 so I was pretty close to the mark. Much better than the 900 odd words last round. Suddenly thought that I may not have put a line count against my poem.
Still no pages for ScriptFrenzy but I did have a productive Slingink day. Finally got the Member Guide written and posted and I also did the page and post for the e-zine I’m going to be running.
Please check out Slingink for more details if you’d like to submit something. We are accepting short fiction, poetry, flashes and articles. Also potentially longer work for serialisation.
