Just had a story, “Blind Spot” accepted at Postcards From… Hooray. I wonder what genre it’ll be put under. It’s strange that my two publishing credits so far have been ghost stories. I used to be mortally afraid of writing about ghosts – but I was always eager to watch them on film and be terrified. Yup.
I have one story that I’m going to send out, and two that need to get written. Both are – gasp – science fiction. Science fiction’s never been my thing, unless you count Michael Crichton, and I skipped his science-oriented chapters. I just loved Ian Malcolm. I originally came up with the one for this anthology that was advertised on a livejournal community, but now that I have it set up I feel like I want to actually send it to a zine. I love zines. It’s weird, I know. Duotrope’s stats say that most people want print publishing that they can submit electronically, and I’d honestly prefer electronic zines and electronic submission. I think because I don’t want to force people to spend money to read anything I write. But then again, I am not planning on making a living as a writer. I’m also of a much younger, internet-addicted generation, and that probably has something to do with it.
So yeah, to anthologize or not. I would send to magazines first if I could, but the anthology deadline is June 1. I suppose I should just focus on getting it written first.
