And So It Begins….

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

So the single step of today is this: a small step for man, a drop in the ocean for mankind, but today I submitted my first story to an actual market.  Not a paying market as such, but the website is still pretty cool.

I’m talking about:

This is a website that publishes a piece of Sci-Fi flash fiction every day of the year, and has been doing so since 2005.  They seem to have staff writers as well as accepting stories by submission.   It’s a simple story (given the 600 word limit it sort of has to be really) about making the right decision.  So here’s hoping.  It takes somewhere between four weeks and four months to hear back, so keeping reading I guess…..

Hello World!

Well, here it is, after all these years – and you’d know what I mean if you knew how old I was – nope, not going there: my dazzling career as a best-selling author.

Wait for it…….
