Unfortunately, my first submitted story did not get published. They liked it, yet they felt that their platform was not in need of such a story. This can be a hard one to swallow, but I felt reasonably satisfied. The reasons: Firstly, I know I like this kind of story and that I still need lots of practice, secondly, I have plenty of inspiration for new stories and ideas on how to improve myself. Especially the second part is crucial, as I’ve recently found out writing Illustro. Sometimes, you just don’t have the right ideas and still putting them on paper is not the right choice. At least that’s what I believe right now.
I’m hoping to send another short storie out this week and I’m excited about the changes I’ve made to my writing and the storyline of Illustro.
By the way, I’ve published Factories of the Minds on my short stories page, so check it out.
Talk to you soon!
