About Me

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Monthly Check-in Write1 Sub1

Last year I tried to complete a weekly Write1Sub1, but my Thyroid Gland thwarted my best intentions.

This year I'm aiming for MONTHLY submissions quota.


So far this month I have submitted:

  • a vignette for a rolling online competition,
  • three 'opening lines' entries to another competition
  • One 2,000 word and one 1,000 word short story submitted to two more competitons.
  • Sci Fi haiku to scifaikuest, four of which have already been accepted for their 2013 publication
  • a true story about my cats for Writers for animals.The editor emailed me to say that it would be accepted for inclusion in the book if I carried out a few edits and this I have done. It's a real boost to my previously flagging morale.

So I'm on a roll, at last...

How often do you submit work to magazines and competitions?

Do you prefer to just work on novels or do you like the experience of writing smaller pieces as well?
