Thoughts in Passing
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you all enjoyed the holiday (and are currently enjoying the following "half-price chocolate" holiday), whether you celebrated with a significant other, family, friends, or some extra self-care

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:
I'm focusing on consistency--writing every day. I find that when I tell myself I only need to write three sentences, but I need to write those first (before doing whatever else it is I want or need to do on the computer), it is much easier for me to get past that initial resistance-to-writing and I usually write more than three sentences. So yay! I found something that works for me! YMMV and of course what works often changes, but if you're having trouble getting started, it's worth a try.

Featured Market
Update: Unfortunately last month's featured market, Remain Magazine, has changed from a professional pay rate to a token rate. They have released all submissions (which is the right thing to do, and good on them) and are soliciting new submissions. Thanks to those of you who wrote in to let me know!

The Nox Pareidolia anthology will be accepting weird fiction and ambiguous horror submissions, April 1st - 30th.

The theme is heavily inspired by Robert Aickman's fiction. Initially, I envisioned a book of stories where it is ambiguous as to whether the nature of the horror/weird element is supernatural or not. But I've recently decided to make that a more openly interpreted theme of ambiguous horror/weird fiction. Whether it be ambiguously supernatural or whether what exactly has or is happening is ambiguous, or any creative idea playing off of ambiguity could be interesting to see explored. But the element that is ambiguous must be intrinsic to the story.

Basics: weird fiction and horror, no wordcount limits but shorter preferred, pays $.06/wd, due 4/1/2019 - 4/30/2019. Guidelines:
