Submissions? [Dec. 6th, 2010|07:33 pm]

I did not do NaNoWriMo. I had planned on doing it but laziness got the better of me, and moving and settling also, so I didn't write a single word in November. But after making a careless mistake at work recently, I realized that I only made it because I don't care about it as much as I used to. So what do I care about? At this point, it's hard to tell. I've made effort to get to a state of peace and stability -- no drama for me -- but now I'm thinking that's not enough. It's time for something new! Or "old".

The new would be fully diving into web development. I still haven't decided if I like it because it's new or because I actually like it.

The old would be writing again. It's been so long that I feel incredibly rusty whenever I try to write snippets, but practice is always good, so you may see more postings from me of first drafts and writing prompts.

Now, a question: does anyone know of any calls for submissions? Targets are always good to have, even if I always miss them. So much for my school motto!

Practice is good, yes. :)

Misty had posted a call for submission from this site before:
and I had always kept a look out for their current themes.

Other than that, I haven't really looked. I don't know how to look. ^^;; And then there's always 31_days...

You're online! Haha, thanks for the link! I also checked out Rocket Kapre, Usok and Philippine Genre Stories but looks like they're closed at the moment or it's unclear if they're really open.

And yes, 31_days!

yes I am. ^^;; trying to fall asleep but of course it doesn't work with the computer open in front of me! (still stalking the Tangled section in FFnet. There is a lime fic! A lime fic, allisan! lol)

yeah, some of those sites haven't been updated in months...

i was looking to see too if there is going to be a 4th Phil Graphic Fiction Awards but no..


Found these in my bookmarks (likely they're all from Misty as well)

Innsmouth: http://www.innsmouthfreepress.com/?page_id=3
HP Lovecraft-ish stories are what they ask for. I'm not familiar with his writing but maybe you are?

Also, Residential Aliens, spec fic--spiritually infused daw (sounds like an alcoholic drink yum): http://www.resaliens.com/submissions/
Though the submission window is closed til January

Oh, here's a contest for speculative fic again, open till Dec 31, 2010.

Doesn't look like it's been updated in a while, but it seems to be worth watching out for... I was trying to write a story for their Ad Astra Diaspora Call, but er... I still haven't finished the story even now.

LOL I haven't opened any of these links since I saved them. ^^;;

Oooo thanks for all the links, Melps! Will check them out. Just gotta aim for something! I actually started writing a little yesterday for the 31_days prompt but of course it started getting long so I didn't finish it. Ohhh welllllll....
