Thanks to Marlena Frank I discovered this fantasy writing contest and publishers Baen.com, a potential home for a fantasy novel I’m planning, so thanks very much to Marlena and may the best girl win!
More progress! Hmm I seem to have written over the word count limit. At least I’m in the final scene though!
Guess I’ll have to cut out some of the subplots that sprang up throughout the story. From what I hear, that’s a normal problem when you go from writing on novels -> short stories. You just get so used to dropping in subplots and whatnot to give more character depth. In short stories though you have to have limited space. You have to balance a detailed environment, character depth, and plot development. I’ll have to comb back through it with a chainsaw once I’m finally done.
