Dance with me! Dance the dance of life! ... oh, right.

Another piece has been sent. This time, it is going to Dark Moon Digest, a quarterly magazine of short stories.

The piece is old, but has never been submitted. I have to admit, I was surprised at my own writing. The idea and story were good, but the writing was somewhat difficult to decipher. I took my sweet time breaking up sentences, making it more readable and easier to understand.

But editing one’s own work is going to be the name of the game for a long, long time it seems. As I am taking a long route to getting published. Simply put, I’m started very small and working my way up. Three stories are in processing over at Everyday Fiction, a site for flash fiction submissions of 1,000 words or less. I have to admit that there is some temptation to rush to sites like Amazon’s self publishing, but I feel it would be better to turn to proven editors and experts before I take the do-it-yourself approach. I will probably do so in time, once I fully understand what I need to improve upon and have gotten my name out there.

In other news, I am busy studying a bit of engineering on the side. For now, I’m only looking on the details of reading blueprints. My friend, Jacob, dropped discs for studying German off. Gods, I could go for a new language. Work finally slowed down for me enough to take up some scholarly pursuits, and that’s exactly what I intend to do to keep myself from being bored.

Hope everyone has cool Veteran’s Day plans.
