Weeknotes - S02E07

Summary:

 

Not a huge amount of work done this week, but some exciting submissions completed, and everything kept ticking over nicely.

 

Monday:

 

I helped Bear post his account of the Thorpeness reading retreat.

 

Then I formatted a story and submitted it to an upcoming anthology publication.

 

Tuesday:

 

I did some Scribophile critiques to get Shards into the spotlight for faster feedback.

 

I also revised my proposed Breathe Magazine article and sent it to Dave for comments.

 

Then I used the Scribophile comments I’d received so far to amend Shards a bit.

 

Wednesday:

 

I completed my article for Breathe Magazine and submitted it.

 

I amended Shards a bit more, based on other Scribophile critiques. Everyone liked it, but also said it could (and probably should) be expanded into a much longer story. I think they’re right, but I didn’t have time to do that before the anthology deadline, so I submitted it with only minor amendments. If it’s not successful, I’ll add it to my revisions list for more development at a later date.

 

Later, I typed up my reviews of two books and a film, all with a unifying theme.

 

Friday:

 

I went through Writing Magazine and added the relevant publication opportunities to my spreadsheet. One of them fit my only unassigned short story really well, so I submitted that.

 

Then I did some brainstorming for Colours, based on Geena’s ideas from last weekend.
