For Nanowrimo 2020, my goal was to write four short stories, edit them, and submit them to paying markets. I ended up deleting a story (because it was plain silly), but three out of four ain’t bad.
One of the Nano stories I wrote is about slugs, a mom/scientist who knows all about mollusks, and a Civil War solider. I just found out that “Mollusk Madness” was accepted to a literary magazine, woohoo! My story won’t be published until 2022, so I’ll give more deets later, but the editor had this to say:
Wheeeee, I’m on cloud nine!
Okay, here I am on solid ground again. I am in the middle of my first draft of my second novella for 2021, a little tale infused with folk horror and poetry. Back to work!
