And Another Quick Link

This time to a piece by Bruce Holland Rogers on Expressionism, Surrealism, Magical Realism, and Fantasy  for Flash Fiction Online, which I thought interesting.

And no sooner had I proclaimed I’d sent off my first submission of the year when – can you guess what happened? – I received my first rejection of the year. Which made the link I posted below even more useful, especially this line: 

“Just because that market doesn’t like my style doesn’t cancel out all those that do”.

Because it’s true.


And that interview I mentioned yesterday is coming. It’s a good one. But you’ll have to wait just a wee bit longer for it…

    That’s what I like to see – an axe-wielding approach to the new year – a submission and a rejection and it’s only day three! Just started JaNoWriMo (possibly as a way of avoiding said approach) but look forward to reading interview and good luck with submission 🙂 Diane

    Ha! As tempting as that is, I feel it may be a little too far on the extravagant side. I might wait till I’ve sold something first! ;)Nik
