Authors: Do you write without an outline? Need to explain what that’s like?. An author without an outline isn’t groundless–”Not all those who wander are lost,” says Tolkien–but sometimes, we do need to readjust or find our footing mid-scene.
Enchanted Conversation, in partnership with World Weave Press, is also soliciting stories for an anthology devoted to the mythical figure of Krampus, “Santa’s dark side or evil twin.” Stories should be under 10,000 words. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2013. Payment is $10 and a copy of the anthology. Find the details here.
Doubting is normal. In its way, it’s a good thing. No author who thought he could “write no wrong” and had no room for improvement would be a person I’d want anything to do with. And that author’s work would probably be swill.
