Diary of a Short Woman: The Blog!

Posted by Nicky Drayden on Jan 7, 2010 in Announcements |

I’m a novelist at heart. I’m not going to lie. But after a few years of dabbling in short stories, I think I’m finally starting to understand what makes them work. Now I’m ready to take my craft to the next level, which means a lot of reading and writing. So here I go, declaring before the world that for the year 2010, I’ll commit to writing 100,000 words worth of short stories, and getting them out to market as soon as possible.

I’ll also be reviewing 100 published short stories and reporting on why they work. Hopefully this will provide a bit of insight into what editors are looking for, as well as give me a chance to get to know the markets I want to pester, I mean submit to.

Seems like a good challenge and a way to keep sane in what promises to be a year of heavy novel editing. Wish me luck!
