The last few months have been hectic and, in some ways, depressing. Depressing because the writing challenge I issued back in September garnered zero… that’s right, ZERO responses.
I spent the last month or so spinning my wheels and catching up on some TV series. Earlier this week I read this blog post by Dean Wesley Smith.
I realized I have been writing quite a bit the past few years, but haven’t really published anything. Thanks for the kick in the ass, Dean!
The Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) recognize the following story categories:
- Novels 40,000 to 100,000 words
- Omnibus more than 100,000 words
- Novellas 17,500 to 40,000 words
- Novelettes 7,500 to 17,500 words
- Short stories less than 7,500 words
In order to get the ball rolling, I dug through my folders and found more than a dozen tales that were either ready to go, or just needed another couple of edit passes. I’ll be posting links to them in the next few days.
It took a few minutes to cruise the website to realize it needs a complete makeover as well. I’m off to do that, now.
No matter what holiday you celebrate, I hope the season is kind to you and yours.
