I did a flash over at Liberty Hall last Friday. Response was descent, considering I didn’t have time to finish the story and just kind of dropped it off in front of the door. Literally and figuratively. Oddly, having a dog in the story has gotten a good response. So I was working on that, but now it’s time to watch Castle, one of the few shows I make it a point to watch. (The other being Dollhouse, and now maybe The Mentalist.)
That leaves me with two other stories to edit and send out. One a fantasy, the other a modern magic/mysticism story. One, the modern story, is my bingo story that I submitted to Shimmer sometime last year. They liked it, but pointed out some things that need a change. I’m finally getting around to that. I agreed with their assessment, I just wasn’t sure how I wanted to change the ending. So I left it sit for a while. I think I have that ending now, just need to execute. They are accepting submissions again, so maybe I’ll shoot it back to them and see what they think.
I just need to do another read through tomorrow (when I’m hopefully less tired) and I’ll send this one off to a contest. I’m hopefully. I like the story. We’ll see how it goes.
I used to have such an easy time figuring out a name for characters. Now, more often, I sit there and stare and stare and stare at it, trying to figure out what to use. I think part of it us I’m over thinking it. at the same time, I know there are some word combos I repeat a lot. Since I’ve noticed I do that, I try to avoid it. Maybe try too much.
