    Teenink?

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by finnmaccool, Mar 21, 2008.

    Does anybody know anything about them?

    Out of nowhere, I got a free copy of their magazine plus a wooden pen and some postit notes, and a notification that I had been published there.

    My mom told me later that she had submitted it before me. I was a little upset but it was a piece I had written a long time ago that I had kind of abandoned so maybe its not so bad afterall.

    Still, should I be happy or no?

    I referenced them on my website (think its the same mob). But I don't know much about them exept whats on their website.

    Which story is yours?

    Bus 72. I don't know anything about them either. They don't seem to be a scam, but I'm not really sure if its anything to brag about either.

    I liked the story. You take the reader to the moment very well.

    I particularly liked the thought behind:

    "He sits up straight, eyes staring blankly at the window, though his vision never seems to reach outside."

    Very evocative.

    Thank you. I'm glad you liked it.

    I feel kinda like a crack head cause I'm always fiending for feedback for my pieces. I really appreciate it.

    The name Teenink sounds familiar, but I don't remember much about them. Congrats, I suppose. Sounds like your mother only had the best intentions in mind.
