Dead markets through 1/15/2017 - AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.ods | AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.xls
Some writers pay too much attention to things like how many other stories are in the submission queue ahead of them. I confess, I am one of those writers!
If you've ever wondered how many other people are submitting stories to the same place you are, I figured out a rough approximation based on what percentage of writers track their submissions on Submission Grinder (tl;dr = 10%). You can read the nitty-gritty here at Some Extremely Unscientific Submission Math
What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:
I brainstormed, plotted, wrote, revised, and submitted a short story in a week, which is a short amount of time for me. Very exciting! (Especially the part where I had to cut. So. Many. Words. to make it fit the wordcount limits of the contest.) Wish me luck.
Also, this happened!
Killing It Softly 2
is a huge anthology of horror by female-identifying writers. My short story about hoarding, "Belongings," is at the beginning of the cognitive deception section. This anthology reached the top 5 in hot new horror anthology releases, and the first volume in this series has a 4 1/2 star average rating on Amazon, so, y'know, people seem to like the series! Go read the sample stories on Amazon.

Featured Market If This Goes On

the far future!)
- Must include the impact of current political policy (social,
