Let me begin this post by acknowledging that I have once again backed a losing team. Whoa, there's something novel. Congratulations all you Manning fans. Chicago? We are enemies again. I have decided to cheer for the Lions yet again. And you know my stance on the evil White Sox. Wayne, beware. This is war. All that being said, I will now proceed with our regularly scheduled blog.
Well, I have received my quickest acceptance. I sent out a story entitled "Fishing With The Little People" on Saturday, and on Sunday morning I received an acceptance letter. That's less than 24 hours. And I'll even be compensated. Five dollars. Hmmm. Okay, so it's not enough to buy an XBOX, but at least the short story, which has been sitting on the harddrive, will receive some minor attention. I suspect I stand a better chance making money with the anthologies. And of course, I am still trying to find an agent for my novel.
If any of you know an agent, please put in a good word for me.
At this time I am continuing with my plan: to get out at least one hundred submissions by the end of the year. So far I have eight things out, with one acceptance and one rejection. By Wednesday or Thursday I hope to have another story into the mix. At the rate I am going, if I don't hit a wall, I think I am going to be able to go well over a hundred. This Spring I will also start sending stuff out through snail mail, although I prefer to do the electronic submissions.
And people, it's only eleven days until Spring.
