Like any good writer trying to break into the market, I've done my research on what sails *ahem*, I mean sells. On some publishers webpage, located conveniently in the "Submissions" section; they often have a "Call for Submissions" outlining certain subjects they are really in the mood for.
Inspired by this knowledge, and a certain subject category, I've decided to try my hand at a pirate themed story I've lovingly dubbed, "Sail My Oceans". This story, as per the outlined call, has to be between 18k and 30k words. It is due by mid-January....AT THE LATEST.
What?! MID-January? She's crazy to attempt that, right?!
The answer to that questions is yes, yes I am. But I'm going to have some fun with such a task and enjoy seeing what fruits such a challenge will offer me. So join me, if you will, as I give daily (maybe hourly depending on how ridiculously crazy things get here. Can we say two kids and a house full of cats?) updates on progress and word count. Maybe, just maybe, I'll even post an excerpt!
