I admit to being a fast writer. Still working on my drafts being cleaner, but there’s improvement with each new story I write.
Recently, I got a request from an editor for one of my erotic paranormal romance novellas. And one of the novels (different editor).
Then, there were these calls for submission for a couple of anthologies.
Hell, not me.
I’ve managed to write a grand 1 (one) short story when trying.
But this, erotic romance, I’ve found I can do. I mean, I sat down this past week and wrote 2 short stories and submitted them to different anthologies.
(PS. Hoping to hear soon, but we all know publishing, right?)
So what makes it so different, that my fantasy, urban or otherwise, and my romance, paranormal of course, just seems to require a longer medium? But erotica I seem to be able to cut shorter?
I’d think plot, but some of my readers specifically commented that what they liked most about my stories was the plot.
Any ideas readers???
…And, hopefully I’ll have some good news to share in the upcoming months. Then, I’ll get to bug ya’ll to read my stuff 🙂
