I mentioned in my last post that I’d be working on a submission for Steampunk Tales, and I was hoping to have it finished by the end of last week. So did not work out that way. I’m still working on the details and hammering it to death, but I feel like the piece I’m submitting will be worth something, even if that ‘something’ isn’t what they’re looking for.
Also, Fantasy Magazine is opening their doors for submission of fiction starting October 1st, and my good friend Pat has challenged me to write a piece and submit with him. I highly doubt I can make it before October 1st, but I’ll make the effort. After all of this, I think I’m going to take a break from taking on challenges for awhile. Whew.
Also, Inkwell Imaginings, the writing group I run with Jess, will be expanding to every Monday night staring October 4th. We’ll be running workshops every other week, with the first scheduled for October 25th with focus on character creation and development. We’re working on obtaining guest speakers for our critique circle nights, whether it be for a physical visit and interview or Skype chat. Also, if anyone wants to JOIN II on Monday nights, but isn’t in the area, we are working on setting up a video chat conference to allow for it. Feel free to let me know if you’re interested. It might get our butts in gear on that front. =P
Once again, looking for published writers or people in ‘the business’ who wouldn’t mind chatting with a library writing group and answering a few questions over Skype or a chat client. We can’t offer compensation, except for our love…. which we hold in very high regard. <3 =P
Attendees interested in joining through Skype, also let me know. We need motivation to get this going, but we really haven’t got the need for it yet. Don’t be shy!
Any questions, feel free to email me at katiemacconnell[at]gmail[dot]com.
Love you, guys. =]
