I mailed out another submission this afternoon; a short story to a Canadian magazine I recently discovered and enjoy.
I wrote the first draft of the story a few months ago and have been tinkering with it incessantly for the past few weeks. It’s been driving me mad, but I think it’s ok. I hope so, anyway.
It’s very short, less than 2000 words. It’s set in an alterante Toronto and features a thoroughly dispicable narrator (though I rather like him). Many of the characters and situations relate to two other (longer) short stories I’d written earlier set in the same world.1
Time to get to work on the next one. So far it’s already 3600+ words.
Wish me luck.
- There’s also a novel, but it’s not very good (yet, hopefully). I really like the idea, but it needs a lot of work. [↩]
