I’ve had nibbles on one or two of them. Nothing definite yet. One is being held for consideration, I’ve had good feedback on another, the others have been out a while.
I’ve been told by many, including name writers and editors, that my writing is good, even very good. But it seems that my stories generally aren’t action enough for their publications. And being a subscriber to those magazines, I understand exactly what they mean.
So this story is a real attempt to get more action happening, and I’m learning a lot as I write it. I just worry that when we try to make something fit a particular market, it doesn’t always work. I’m taking great care to keep my writing as naturally mine as I can.
But I think the premise is original, and interesting. And as I make my way across Europe, I’m keeping my eyes and mind open and making notes.
There are definitely a million stories out there to be seized upon. I plan to grab as many as I can.
