So I’ve written the first installment of a short story I am hoping to get published. One of the most common rules is that it cannot be published anywhere else.
This includes a blog. So I can’t post it. Which makes me sad. But at the same time, I am hopeful that it makes it into the magazine.
I’m sending it into Steampunk Tales.
Any suggestions on where else I could send it if that falls through? I’ve got the Writer’s Market book at home, but I would like to hear what ya’ll think.
I’m struggling to figure out how much fantasy to put into my Steampunk story. My novel, Dreaming of White Marble Tombstones, is very much fantasy, with steampunk thrown in for good measure. But this story is much less fantasy and quite a bit more Steampunk.
I love my fantasy steampunk setting, and it’s really making me stretch my writing style to work within a more stringent story structure. I find I am enjoying the experience. It’s good to stretch.
