I don’t normally publish twice in one week, but this is too exciting to skip — I’ve been sending out a lot of submissions lately to different online and print fiction magazines. One of the sites I sent to was Shotgun Honey. They accept crime fiction stories of less than 700 words. I read crime fiction in school, but I’d never written any myself, so I figured, what the heck, let’s try it out. It was a difficult piece to write, because it was far out of my comfort zone — I like writing stories that deal with gender stereotypes, and the piece I wrote had nothing to do with that.
However, I’m really glad I pushed my boundaries, because my flash fiction piece “The Hunt” went live today on Shotgun Honey. Woo-hoo!
