Write1Sub1 Week #27 Check-In

Sunday, 10 July 2011

Sunday is Write1Sub1 Weekly check-in day. I'm posting updates on my short fiction output here as well as over on the main Write1Sub1 blog.

This week's short story - Eighteen Million Butterflies - is another that started out as a flash story but grew and grew (pupated?) as I wrote. It ended up at around 2K words. Hopefully I can polish it up next week and send it on its way ...

    1. Whew. Good work, Simon.

      I need to get some more subs out this week.

      It's a numbers game -- in some ways, isn't it?

      I just read a blog where an author made a pro sale on his 65th submission. Wow.

    2. Thanks, Deborah. The 65th sub of the same story? Wow.

    3. I know. It makes me look like a total light-weight.

    4. It's incredible - and, actually, pretty encouraging!


    I'd love to know what you think.
