8 Benefits of Writing Short Stories

The lovely Theresa Milstein has kindly offered to be a part of my Make Believe Anthology Tour. I didn't even have to twist her arm (which is good because my brother tells me I twist like a girl). I will be talking about 8 Benefits of Writing Short Stories. Yes, there are benefits! I'd love to see you over there. Click HERE!

I am also over with Terri Rochenski at Scribbler's Sojourn being interviewed! Yikes!! I'm in two places at once! I must be a super hero (or just a crazy person on roller skates which seems more likely). I'd love to see you over there!! Click HERE!

If you have time and want a little chuckle, Chris Andrews, an Aussie writer I met at GenreCon 2012, has written up a hilarious post: Successfully Pitching to an Agent or Editor – The Cretin’s Guide

  3. I like the idea of writing short stories for anthologies like Make Believe. The magazine market seems tough and very niche oriented from what I've seen, but I like anthologies that center on a theme. I picked up George RR Martin's Songs of Love and War and thought it was kind of cool to sample various author's styles in one book.

    1. Yes! That's what I love about anthologies too. And it's amazing all the different takes on the same theme too.
