letter-envelopeFellow writer Amanda C. Davis seems to be my main motivator for submitting stories this year. She’s great about sharing submission opportunities in her Twitter feed, and she mentioned one a couple of weeks ago that appealed to me, mainly because it was flash fiction (something I have a good bit of lying around in my writing archives).  As a result of her tweet, I dug out and polished up a couple of short pieces and sent them out for consideration. I also finished editing another flash story I’d been fiddling with and sent that one out too. I’m still waiting to hear back about the first two; the latter one, sadly, got rejected in record time, which dampened my sense of accomplishment quite a bit. But at least I’m trying… and trying unsuccessfully is better than not trying at all.
