And I just cannot help but tell you. I submitted a piece of flash fiction to Escape Pod’s 300 word flash fiction contest. So did my friend, the Queen of Plot. Because Escape Pod rocks, and this is the first time I’ve seen a call for something not reprints, which is what they usually favor. Even better, it’s a reader (listener?) rated contest. No, I’m not going to tell you which one is mine, that would be against the rulez, but you should join the forums and read the various flash bits and vote for your favorites nonetheless. I’d vote for myself (and other ones I like), but I’m scared to read the comments on my piece. My ego is weak, weak. But you have no stake, right? So go, enjoy. Discover the wondrous good that is Escape Pod. Even though I’ve linked some of the stories here before, in a few weeks I intend to do a “Best of Escape Pod” post, so you can stay tuned for my five or eight favorite stories ever from Escape Pod.

This makes three things I have out in submissions, more than I’ve ever had out before. Ha.

You notice how I revealed one secret so that I could hold back another? Double ha.

Also, I shoveled snow today. For the first time. In my life.

You should read your comments. They are very, very good.

It is awesome that you’ve got three submissions out. I am delighted to hear it. I too have a small secret: I lurk, waiting to read your blog about how writing is going for you, eager to hear about submissions and such.
Also cool about Escape Pod, I’d never heard of it until a friend got a couple of CDs loaded with Escape Pod podcasts for a recent birthday.
Good luck, not that I think you need to rely on luck. =)

I wish I knew which one is yours. I don’t have the slack-time at work (usually) to give all the submissions the attention they probably deserve. Can you at least share which group yours is in? :)
