The Fart Of Fiction, No. 14
Sometimes hearing podcasts of ideas transformed into words can be great. No one wants to listen to somebody preaching about the craft of fiction. Everyone has a story, but who goes the extra mile?
When writing novels, short stories, or poetry, have patience, take the time for editing. To make your story stand out, have a social media platform. Experiment, invent, take risks, and take your idea to the next level. Get readers familiar with your work, but don't give away all the secrets. Just give away most of them.
Submit short fiction and poetry to journals and magazines. Poetry Is Dead is a periodical and might be a cool home for edited poetry, but keep writing.
However, small journals and magazines get swallowed up by the bigger ones. Make sure to send it to reliable sources. Research a small town before moving out of the big city.
