Does anyone have tips for increasing productivity? I have lots of story ideas, and I'd love to get to them all someday. But if I continue as I am, that's not going to happen. I already outline my stories. And I've kept a wordcount log from time to time, but not for a few years now. What do others do to stay on top of their writing? Not to keep up motivation, though that may be part of it, but to consistently make progress with your goals ..read more

Jo Fletcher Books, an imprint of Quercus Books (in turn an imprint of Hachette) is rebranding as Arcadia Books. And they're open to unagented submissions of Adult and YA SFFH novels. This came up in my Google news feed today, and I thought I'd share. Here's the link to the Authors Publish article about it. I'm not in a position to submit to them right now, but I do write Adult and YA so maybe someday... Jo Fletcher Books is now Arcadia Books -- accepting SFFH manuscripts ..read more

Flash Fiction Contest - May 2024: "Short"
SFF World Forum » Writing

Hey All! After some discussion in the last flash contest's thread, we decided to change things a little. For a while, we've had flash contests with 2 month submission windows and a maximum of 1,500 words. Well, I'm shortening both of those. The majority of entries haven't come close to the maximum word count, so this may be less burdensome. Also, I have forgotten about the contests a few times, so it's my hope that a shorter window will keep the contest relevant to all. So here it is! Pay...
