I haven’t posted in a while. I took the family to Cody, WY, over the 4th of July and we saw grammas and grampas, and my aunt and uncle, and my sister and husband and her family. And it was great. I love my family. I am very blessed.
Did you know that quandary was spelled like that? I didn’t. Had to look it up.
I found out this last week the the Ensign and New Era magazines, and the online Meridian Magazine don’t take fiction. I was pretty disappointed. But I asked my buddies at Authors Incognito, and got some great suggestions. I also purchased an electronic copy of LDS Writer’s Market. It is a really cool reference. But guess what? Most of the fiction contests end (submission deadline) on June 30th. So, I just missed them all.
The Writer’s Market (the big boys), are running a writing contest now. I read through the rules and the timeline, and I just don’t know if I want to submit there. The short story I recently wrote is quite religious. It is probably better suited for a Christian magazine. But I can’t find one I would like to send it to.
The story is quite dear to my heart. So much so, that I had hoped to share it with my LDS writer friends. If it ends up in some obscure Christian magazine it will be harder to share it.
I am going to think it through. Sleep on it tonight. I just may end up posting it here on blogger. Then I have full control of it. I get to spread the word. I can use it to attract readers. Maybe. I’ll think about it. You may just see it here tomorrow.
