For this year’s Clarion West Write-a-thon, I worked on my short story skills. One story is in the submission phase looking for a market to call home. A draft of a second story is finished and is now being edited. The story is slightly long for my target markets, but with some work, it will be made right. After editing, my Alpha and Beta Readers will look at it and their suggestions will be applied as appropriate. Then it will begin its submission phase.
