Write, edit, submit, repeat

I just sub­mit­ted a new/old short sto­ry — “The Ravens” — to Corey Redekop’s Can­lit Com­e­dy anthol­o­gy. Fin­gers crossed.

I actu­al­ly wrote the sto­ry a few years ago, and sub­mit­ted it to a cou­ple mar­kets, who reject­ed it. It seemed like the right idea for a humour piece, so I tried to res­ur­rect it…

…but I could­n’t find the orig­i­nal file any­where.

And so I re-wrote it from the ground up. I think it turned out all right. I read it today at Write Club, and there was quite a lot of laugh­ter. I’m going to call that a good sign.

Wish me luck!

Update: Well, I’ve made it into the 2nd round. Fin­gers still crossed. (Crampin’ a lit­tle bit…)
