‘The Short of It’

RAF_VOL10_ISS_2b-217x300I have just found this blog by the creators of the Review of Australian Fiction. It is fairly new, but already has some great articles for anyone interested in the short fiction form.

This article on Failing Better – On Short Stories and Rejection, is exactly where I’m at at the moment.

I particularly like his idea of using excel to chart your rejections (I could even turn them into a nice graph or even a pie chart if I do that).

He also notes that now is the time to send off your collections “as there are a number of exciting new short story publishers around, and established publishers seem more open to the idea of publishing single author collections.”

Some good reading here for newby short story writers like me. Enjoy!
