As peer review sites have been invaluable to me I thought I’d better post about my experiences.
Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be posting my views both good and bad on the following:
The ones to avoid
Enjoy the weekend.
Well both editors like it. One wants some changes to the beginning and the end, with some further cosmetic changes throughout. One likes it as it is.
This is going to be fun. The plan will be to cast the net further. Get a few more reviews and go with the majority feedback.
Not that I've got anytime for re-writes.
Oh, and my mum read the story and she liked it too. She described it as a quirky fantasy with some good turns of phrase.
The whole idea behind setting up this blog was to share my experiences of trying to get my work published. The site was adorned with the immortal words UNDER CONSTRUCTION for far too long.
By the time I finally managed designing 'The Musings' I'd already had an offer of publication for a little horror tale by the name of "Hello!"
I decided to carry on with the same aims. I kept the blog under the title of 'A Wannabe Writer's Blog.' At the end of the day one story is just that...one story.
I received an email today from Erotic Shades accepting Fantasies. It's early days. I've got a lot of work to do, but a second acceptance proves that the first acceptance certainly wasn't luck. It's a big decision but I've changed the name of the blog to 'A Writer's Blog.'
I'll keep sharing my experiences. I'll do a post on Erotic Shades they're worth checking out.
Its been over a week since I last posted. The day job has taken over my life. There's no solution to this problem. I have a mortgage, bills to pay, and mouths to feed. The day job enables me to achieve those committments. All being well I'll get my life back next week.
M J Wolfson - That's me.
