Nothing to Submit

It struck me this morning that I’m  feeling out of sorts about the fact I’ve got nothing out at the moment. Not only that, but I don’t have anything even vaguely ready to be sent out looking for a home, everything is in an unfinished state and that is not how I want it to be.

Time seems to be at a real premium at the moment, the last few weeks have been pretty terrible in general though today I am feeling like I might be able to claw back a little of my precious time.

And focus on what needs doing.

As much as I want to be writing Chasing Ascension, I also really want to have some stories ‘finished’ so that I can send them around. The plan was to just stockpile until baby arrives but I’m not really a very patient person and if I finish something before then, I won’t be able to resist starting the submission rounds with it.

Which is fine, lol I got lucky with my first two subs of the year, but I know it’s not going to be like that every time!

Anyway, I am wasting writing time. I’ve got to get this sort finished so that I can move on to something else. It needs to sit for a few days before I can tidy it up and get some feedback on it, which is time I can spend working on CA.

  1. You have my sympathy! That is why one of my goals was to write at least one short story a month, so that I have a stock pile, and so far, out of the four or five I have written, there is one that I think is gold, but will sit on it for a little while until I can find the right market for it.

    Even if you don’t have the success with submission, at least your work is getting out there!

    1. Exactly, it’s just about the fact that you’re getting your stuff out there whether it gets accepted or not. I hadn’t expected to feel dissatisfied when I had nothing doing the rounds, so it was a strange realization for me!

      Nice when you have a story you really believe is good. That’s how I felt about Birth Rights!
