Submission Sunday – Week Ending 03/16/2014

I had higher hopes for getting stories finished and submitted this week, but such things didn’t occur. I did finish and submit one new story, and that was “A Ningyo’s Pearls.” I also resubmitted four stories, listed below:

Summary: 1 New, 3 Resubmissions

New Submissions:

“A Ningyo’s Pearls” submitted to Spellbound Children’s E-Zine.



“Who Killed Zombie Robin?” resubmitted to Jamais Vu.

“Starting from Zeroth” resubmitted to Shimmer Magazine.

“Beneficent” resubmitted to Apex Magazine.

Writing in Public: Day 12, Month 02

“Pearl Diver” has been finished! It’s been renamed to “A Ningyo’s Pearls” and came in at 2,490 words. It’s been sent on to Spellbound for its sea monster themed issue. It’s my first time writing a children’s story, so I’m curious to see how it does. According to Duotrope, Spellbound is in the top 25 of most personable fiction markets, meaning they tend to personally respond to rejections. So, if the story is rejected there’s a good chance I’ll receive some comments on it. At the very least, that’s what I’m looking for.
