Dead markets through 1/18/2018 - AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.ods | AswiebedotcomMarkets_-_Dead.xls
We live in the Age of Distractions! How do we still manage to focus and write?
For me, it comes down to a few principles.
1. Avoid temptation instead of resisting temptation.
Turn off push notifications on your phone applications. On your writing device, consider installing a browser extension like Leechblock that stops you from
2. Create focused time.
Try something like the Pomodoro Method or The Most Dangerous Writing App, or go to a different location that is where you only write. Schedule writing-only time.
3. Figure out what you need to do in focused time, and what you can do even when you're distracted.
Writing might be something you have to do in solid chunks of time. Maybe you can do market research or editing or read writing newsletters during time when you are more distracted, whether the distraction is being around other people or your kids or simply during a time of day when you have trouble concentrating.
What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:
Deadlines, deadlines, all the deadlines! I'm giving a talk to some college students on Monday, I've promised feedback to a couple of writer friends, I did taxes, I'm getting this newsletter out, I am doing some narration work, and I'm writing three short stories for a collaborative fairy project. There are other things on my list, too. Did I say list? I mean spreadsheet. :)
Unidentified Funny Objects 7 anthology wants humorous SF/F, offers $.10/word.
We’re looking for speculative stories with a strong humor element.
Think Resnick and Sheckley, Fredric Brown and Douglas Adams. We welcome
quality flash fiction and non-traditional narratives. Take chances, try
something new, just make sure that your story is funny.
Puns and stories that are little more than vehicles for delivering a punch line at the end aren’t likely to win us over.
