I have two works which will hopefully be published this year.
I have mentioned the three page short to be published in ‘Decay’ here in Australia. This is still moving on, with a possible publishing date in June.
I have also just sold my first piece of writing! In my New Years Resolution 2015 Style post I talked about a submission I was planning on making but was unsure whether to or not as I knew it wasn’t my best work. Well, I ended writing a completely different eight page comic script, which I submitted to the publisher. This was rejected, as it failed to meet the brief (in fact, it missed it by a wide margin). I received some very encouraging feedback about the story, though. I wrote another piece, which submitted and was accepted for consideration.
Late last month, I received an email stating that of the 64 scripts submitted, I have been selected in the top six and would be included in the anthology! As a result, I received a $100 payment. I first paid writing gig – and hopefully not my last!
2015 couldn’t have gotten off to a better start! Hopefully it will be onwards and upwards for me from here!
