Odds and Ends II

I reused an old title for lack of serious inspiration. I've update my links to include a few new bloggers I have been visiting lately. I also linked my interview at Flood's site, and my guest blogger spot on Fringes.

A belated congrats to all the winners and honorable mentions of the flash fiction contest at Jason's place. Some of my new friends made top honors. Elisha's story, Jimmy Crick, was a clear winner. You won't find a single one of us that disagrees.

So now that I have an article on the way, I am getting serious about a repeat performance. A special thanks to my new friend Anthony, who inspired me to look around for places to submit. Also to Toni, my writer's group companion and friend from California, who provided me with several sources to consider. See my sidebar for my list as it grows.

Hey! My placeholding wristband worked! I think it's great that you're ready for multiple submissions. Write, rewrite, tweak and send. So many good things are happening and I'm glad you're taking advantage.

Good luck with your future submissions. I think the way things are going it can only be good from here on out.

Wonderful. So glad you're using the momentum from the Deathlings win to encourage you to keep going.

RIght on. Saw the update--I'm glad they kept the story, I couldn't see why they wouldn't

Thanks for the shout-out. I'm glad I could get you thinking about more submissions.

Through all the rejections and hopefully acceptances, the submitting process really is vital to process. As is this blogging, I find. Great way to connect with other writers and share in the ups and downs.

I'm still on a long weekend away so I have to play catch-up when I get home. I am also on the wobbly pops so hopefully I make some sense. Ha! I just wanted to say that I am glad things are taking off for you and I look forward to watching your journey to success.

I already said it on my blog, but again CONGRATS on being published! I'm going to have a closer look at deathlings.com once I am caught up on the blogging. It looks like I could spend some serious time there. Keep churning out stories while you have the momentum. You are doing a great job!

So glad to see the community growing!

Best of luck with your new project Scott. I hope success builds on success.

Scott- sounds like you have bitten into the challenge.

One word of advice for contests (that you can ignore at will)--take all the good stuff anyone says and ignore the bad, unless it is actively constructive for your work.

Remember.

Good luck, Scott! And Happy Independence Day!
