Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

I thought today was the day last year I got my R. I distinctly remember having an R with time to spare before Q2 submissions were due. I think R's might have come around this time last year, but the rest of the results definitely came after the start of April. Can confirm, I got my HM result in LAT...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

Well, got my story in super early this quarter because I knew what story I wanted to send in, and I didn't want to tie it up at another market past the deadline for this quarter.

So in as of 11/18!

Re: The editorial process for short fiction

So as someone who edits for a magazine (admittedly, token paying), I'm firmly of the opinion that the lightest touch is the best. We have bought a few stories that needed some significant copy editing work, but we rarely accept stories that we would not publish pretty close to as they are presented....

HM for me, which I'm really pleased about, since I've been doubting this story for a long time. But this gives me hope that it just hasn't found the right editor to love it yet!

Re: Writing Room/Office/Space

Since both my husband and I are writers, we don't really have writing spaces. We both just write in the living room. Though occasionally we bring out the headphones if one or the other of us is deep in concentration and want to avoid disturbances. We do have a desk and chair in the spare room that w...

Re: Flame Tree seeking short stories

However... Flame Tree have a habit of sending acceptances first, rejections after (you can see the pattern on the recent responses on the Grinder). Yeah, this is a procedure that I really don't understand... As someone who helps run a small press, we send out rejections on stories that we know we c...
