More Goals

One of the two most stressful annual periods at dayjob is (mostly) ending today, and I am wiped out. I managed to get in my anonymous review and one preview this week, but that's it. I got nowhere on the short story.

Deadline for the erotica story is July 1, so I still have a chance to finish it up and submit it this weekend, if I can get my mind in gear. The goal for the month was to submit two stories, and I've submitted one so far. I can finish this one, I have plenty of wordcount to make that possible, it just needs...a sex scene, and some sort of character Thing, and, you know, the actual story part. *ahem* Well, my goal did not read "submit two genius short stories." It read "submit two short stories." And even if the story isn't genius, that doesn't mean it will be rejected. I have no idea of knowing what the editor needs for that particular anthology.

I had an acknowledgement that the already-submitted story was received; I'll hear back in December.

I have to check my pile of Calls for Submissions, but I think there's only one with an August 1 deadline. Also, I have one for July 12th, looking for short pieces, and one that has a rolling deadline, so maybe I will try for two submissions of any length for next month. Then there's one for September 1 that I really want to do, since I like the editor.

Where do you find your calls for submissions? I'm guessing a few are at the ERWA site, but any other good spots? I've been in a short story mode lately and sent off three to Cleis anthologies and now it's hurry up and wait...

Yep, ERWA for the most part. Alison Tyler sometimes posts calls on her blog, as well.
