    Small Steps...

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by SethLoki, Feb 22, 2017.

    I got a flash fic. accepted the other week. It came out today:

    The Sirens Sing

    It's on 101 Words, I like the place 'cause it's a quick and easy fix (in terms of reading). There's some way better stuff on there than mine, so... I'm pleased to be in their company—I feel like the cat who got the cream today. :)

    Thanks @Homer Potvin . Was quite a challenge to keep the word-count down—I felt as much a surgeon as a writer and learned a lot from the endeavour.

    I think a rocket pilot with a pen in his teeth.

    Small steps indeed! That's how I started out. Selling a few short stories, selling some things on Amazon, working content mills. Took me 2 years, but I'm at a point now I can pay my bills, save a bit for retirement, and breath easily. So you'll get there in time. Don't worry.!

    Really well done. I subscribe to some poetry sites and received poems daily. Honestly, I've enjoyed your story better than any poem that I've received lately. It is going into my file of poetry.
