Thoughts in Passing

Is there something on your to-do list that's writing-related? Something nagging at the back of your mind? Maybe it's research, or revising, or submitting, or answering an email, or even writing itself. Set a timer for 10 minutes, STOP READING THIS NEWSLETTER RIGHT NOW, and go do that thing for ten minutes. If the thing is writing, actually write! Don't stare at a blank page, don't think about writing ... actually write. You can use an application like The Most Dangerous Writing App to keep from getting distracted.

(Leave this window open! Come back afterwards!)

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

Mostly dithering. I have so many things I feel like I need to do right now that I have been dithering between them instead of actually getting anything done. Bah.

Featured Market
Deep Magic publishes clean fantasy and sci-fi stories.

What you first need to understand is that we aim to be the dominant magazine for clean fantasy and sci-fi stories. Itís our tag-line. If you can tell a gripping story that doesnít rely on sex, swearing, and graphic violenceóyouíve come to the right place.

We Do Not Publish the Following
  • Stories with graphic violence
  • Stories with mature sexual themes
  • Stories with profanity or vulgarity. We want a broad, family-friendly audience; think original Lord of the Rings trilogy or Star Wars.
  • Stories featuring or glorifying illegal drug use
  • Stories with graphic child abuse or glorifying child abuse in any way
  • Stories not within the Fantasy and Science Fiction Genres. Itís got to have some magic or cool technology in it!
  • Poorly written stories

The basics: SF/F, 1,000 - 40,000 words, pays $.08/wd for the first 5,000 words, $.06/wd for additional words up to 16,000 wd, caps at $1,060, accepts reprints. Guidelines at http://deepmagic.co/submissions/#.
