|Writing I'm working on now|
We are looking for young, old, novice and veteran voices to send us stories that possess a powerful sense of place. Stories can be fiction or nonfiction, but please indicate which genre at the top of your manuscript. Entries should be between 800-5,000 words and must not have been previously chosen as a winner in another contest. Previously published work is accepted, but again, please indicate this. Every submission will be read blind, so anyone can win...
And... I also happened upon cahoodaloodaling: a collaborative publication, with an upcoming theme:
I've got several pieces in various drafts from my 2001-02 travels in New Zealand and Australia to consider for revision for Nowhere. And I've got a piece I've already revised that won a prior contest at Travelers' Tales and... voila!... cahoodaloodaling accepts previously published work.
With a few other story ideas, publications and deadlines before and after the new year, I'm set to go.
Dear Readers: Any writing goals for the new year? Whether you're working on first drafts or you're aiming for polishing and publication, consider setting yourself a schedule with a timed writing or word count per day or per week.
