I submitted to a big magazine. A 3k story to Analog!
All the submissions I’ve done thus far have been to small press…even micro-press anthologies and magazines. I’ve very proud of the acceptances I’ve had, and I’m growing more confident in my own abilities. It’s time to start reaching a bit more.
My goal is different this round than it has been previously: Submit something every week. For the last two weeks, I missed that. (Although I did have a story published in the June issue of GETLF8D and I received an acceptance for an anthology.) This week I came back in a big way.
If accepted, I’ll be over the moon. If not, I’ll be able to shop it elsewhere, and I’m meeting my own goal of actually submitting instead of just writing things that sit on the shelf unedited, or worse, unfinished.
I’ve also arranged for childcare during the first week of summer vacation so I can concentrate on writing!
