Rare is the month that I get something published. Rejected? That’s about every month. But acceptance is a rare and wonderful moment.
So, getting two stories published in one week is as foreign to me as Ethiopia.
Imagine the surprise when I discovered this evening that I had a flash fiction piece accepted and published on The Drabble Thursday, January 18. That’s two stories in one week if you’re scoring at home, which I am.
Also, to keep you updated, I’m working on my third story of my Year of Writing One Story Per Week. Tentatively titled “Stuck,” I’m at 2,500 words and I’m not liking where it’s going. I’m tempted to retitle it “Suck” if this keeps up. The story has completely ignored my outline and taken off for parts unknown. Exciting at first, but now it’s pissing me off and I can’t wrangle it in.
Anyway, now that two stories have been accepted, I have only one out on submission. It’s with Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, so pretty much a guarantee of Rejection there, but you can’t win if you don’t enter, right? Hope you enjoy my story on The Drabble. If you do, feel free to “Like” it while you’re there. Thanks!
