I think 1,000 words is a bit tricky...
Yes, 1,000 words is very tight. Especially for what I like to write, which is mysteries. It's hard to quietly direct the reader's attention away from things in just a thousand words. Everything tends to stick out.

You really can't suddenly say "Look! A bunny!" and slip in an important clue while their attention is elsewhere.

Edit: Although it would be fun and funny to write something just that way, wouldn't it?

Just FYI this released yesterday. I would link it here but pretty sure Dr. Drib would drop the moderator hammer on my poor little head if I did! You can search it up as "Something for the Journey" on Amazon....

I bought a copy, and wondering did any of you get in? I will jump and read your stories tonight if you tell me which ones. Mine, "The Faceless Ones" is in there.

Anyways - they will be looking more stories for the third and final one some time in January. Same rules/etc - so you can start now.

Oh Wow! Sotires! Sotires!

Hmmm, I had a bit of trouble finding it....thought maybe it wasn't no the U.S. site so went to the U.K. site...and yes it is on both sites. I'm not in it, did not submit but here's the amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Something-Jour...or+the+Journey

OH - I can only endorse my story in the collection because I have not read them all yet, but really my story is worth the full price, and 100% of the proceeds go to a children's hospital so really, the rest of the stories do not matter - just order it!

Also available at Smashwords. Search on the same name.

I came up with what I still consider a good idea, but life interfered big time these last few weeks. Anyway, maybe I can get my act together in time for the third act.

I liked the first volume -- I'll probably pick this one up as well. After the holidays and the kids go back to their respective schools I'll need a break!

I purchased the second one - and plan to read it - but not the first one yet.
