The launch was great, thanks! I enjoyed the reading – luckily I went first, so could then relax. It was great to meet some of the other writers too.
I love meeting other writers…
We need to have a Den get together… In RL, I mean.December 9, 2018 at 4:19 pm #3385
(not sure I want to meet the bots though)December 9, 2018 at 4:47 pm #3386
Den get together would be fab. I am in Lincolnshire, but I can travel to London easilyDecember 9, 2018 at 5:59 pm #3387
Glad to hear the launch went well.
I would love to attend a Den meet-up.December 9, 2018 at 11:49 pm #3393StevieParticipant
I got long listed in the Crowvus Publishing Christmas ghost story comp. No publication but at least I know I’ve now got a half decent tale in the bag. And since mine’s wasn’t especially Christmassy, I’ve got an in for any spooky comps that crop up!
If this link works – I will be amazed at myself.December 10, 2018 at 9:53 am #3395
Well done Stevie, that’s a great accolade. And nice to have the story in your back pocket too.
Be amazed at yourself – the link works!December 10, 2018 at 8:45 pm #3399
Congratulations, Stevie!December 10, 2018 at 9:13 pm #3400
Oh well done, Stevie! That is super news. And good point about still being able to submit elsewhere too! Here’s to a double whammy.December 11, 2018 at 9:31 am #3402SandraParticipant
Excellent news Stevie; your writing deserves to be read more widely.December 11, 2018 at 10:45 am #3404
Congratulations Stevie!December 11, 2018 at 12:27 pm #3412
Well done @stevie! That’s great news, and now get that thing out to magazines – it’s clearly ready to be out in the world!!December 11, 2018 at 9:45 pm #3428KazGParticipant

My last story of the year has been published today by Reflex Fiction https://www.reflexfiction.com/a-thin-blue-line-flash-fiction-by-laure-van-rensburg/
Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the holidays! xxDecember 23, 2018 at 10:17 pm #3547December 28, 2018 at 3:43 pm #3583December 28, 2018 at 5:20 pm #3586
Well done Elle. I’m impressed with all these publications. I still haven’t had one since my first nearly four years ago, despite a concerted effort recently. I did have a very kind rejection from Barren Magazine recently, which still counts as ‘a miss is as good as a mile’.December 30, 2018 at 7:11 pm #3597
Thanks @@daedalus. In all honesty for every publication there are about a dozen rejections as well. It’s kind of a number’s game. People who run Barren Magazine are just great, so thoughtful of writers. Who knows 2019 might be the year for you.December 30, 2018 at 7:50 pm #3598
Hope so @elle! In truth the numbers game is a problem for me, as I struggle to write enough to get the hit rate. Will keep trying though. The Barren editors are lovely, they gave me the nicest rejection ever 🤣February 4, 2019 at 8:50 am #4223John S AltyParticipant
