Shots fired!



The first thing I noticed when I woke up on Saturday was the blinking light on my phone.  A message! I rolled over, picked it up, and went straight to my Gmail app.

Dear Alexandru,

Thank you for the opportunity to read “The Birthday Party.” Unfortunately, your story isn’t quite what we’re looking for right now.

I am now officially an aspiring wannabe writer.

Of course, I was a bit bummed that my dream of having the first story submitted being hailed as a masterpiece is now a bittersweet memory.

I spent the rest of the weekend on the couch watching True Detective and drinking canned Highballs. This week I’m editing my next story for submission and also re-sending the last one.

One of the pieces will go to Writers of the Future. I enjoy the anthology every year and the type of stories favored tend to align with my taste  a lot more than most SFF magazines.


The Challenge so far:

  1. The Birthday Party – SciFi 3,000 words – hanging out
  2. ?????
  3. ?????
  4. ?????
  5. ?????
  6. ?????
  7. ?????
