Far Away?

While doing some research on Duotrope’s Digest on where to send one of my stories, I came upon an announcement for a print anthology.

Its tentative title is Far, Far Away and, according to the editors, it’ll be “about the worlds that exist alongside our own, unseen, be they on the other side of the looking-glass, in virtual reality, or in the sewers under the city.” Find out more about it here.

I have a story that seems quite suitable but has a huge flaw – it’s not finished. So, as the deadline of February 29th is quickly approaching, I am concentrating more and more on finishing and polishing it. Unfortunately, my attention capabilities are harshly impaired by my chronic lack of time.

That being said, my presence on your blogs and on mine will be rather scarce. Not that I’ve been posting a lot anyway, but, at least, I was reading your blogs. I’ll still do it, of course, but just fewer at a time.

Maybe you too have a story that you’d like to send there…

Happy writing!

In the mean time, there’s another one of George Grie’s wonderful paintings for you, to challenge your imagination…

Best of luck, Vesper.

I hope the story runs away with you.

I absolutely love the picture.

All the best with your story. The biggest challenge writers face is lack of time. Get writing girl!! :D

beautiful

I love that idea. Both virtual and real. I like how all these creatures and I, share the same space of my home and yard, and live completely separate lives, though we can, and do, do things, that can impact each other.

I love that about the snow, you can see the footprints of creatures, that have occupied the same space as you, but you didn't know it.

Good luck, good writing. Pour yourself into it.

Good luck with the story and know that I too need to finish one by the end of the month.

Also, I really dig that painting. Thanks for posting it.

I have a story I'm probably going to submit there. I don't know if it's exactly what they want, but I'm gonna give it a shot. Thanks for the info!

Thank you, Jason, I hope I can keep up. :-)

Akasha, thank you. Yes, this guy's imagination is very much to my liking.

Taffiny, thank you. What a nice idea - footprints in the snow, speaking of creatures that we don't always see... Very interesting!

Thank you, Paul, and good luck to you too. Do give it a shot - you have nothing to loose! I'm glad you found the info helpful! :-)

Vanilla, your encouragement is much appreciated. Thank you! I know what you mean, but I could also send it to you anytime, if you'd like to. :-)

Ello, thank you so much! I'll be back soon! :-)

Hotwire, yes, it is! It just gives wings to one's imagination...

Chris, I can hear you! :-)Thank you from my heart!

I'm glad you like the painting - it shows a world I would like to imagine...

Writing should always takes precedence over blogging!

Thank you, Bernita.

Unfortunately, modern life makes us all very busy, Ropi.

Yes, it sounds interesting, Jon.
