It occurred to me that I ought to start submitting some of my unpublished shorts while I work on Logan’s story.
After doing some research, I decided to submit “One Man’s Hel” to Flash Fiction Online, where publication counts toward the requirement for membership in the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA). They also offer $50.00 per story, which is a good deal. I found their submission process very user-friendly.
“A Fistful of Cybernetics” is a little lengthy for a short story, at just over 7,000 words, and many places limit their shorts to 5k or 6k words. I opted to submit this to Kasma Magazine, even though they had rejected “The Light Fantastic.” My style of humor might not be what they’re looking for. Even so, one can hope.
Lastly, I submitted “The Oracle” to Beneath Ceaseless Skies, which is going to be another hard sell, primarily because the site clearly indicates they have a narrow interest in comedy, preferring the drier variety. While I personally have a dry sense of humor, I fear “Oracle” may be a little too wet for them.
I’m still looking for a good place to submit “The Riddle of Elders.”
With these three stories submitted, I need to forget about it for around 8 weeks and focus on Logan. Wish me luck!
