New Call for Submissions: Wild Girls, Wild Nights

Postby Sacchi » 03 Nov 2011, 16:14

I've just posted my new Call for Submissions over on http://sacchi-green.blogspot.com/, and I'm open to critiques. Does it make any sense? Is it too equivocal? Not equivocal enough? How did I get myself into this? Any opinions welcome. I can edit over there, and when there's nothing more I can change, Fran can post it in the markets section here.

Sacchi, I went and read the guidelines, I think they're very clear and you've given the authors enough leeway to tell the truth without incriminating themselves. LOL I'm gonna try for this one.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Write whatever you want to, but things from way back when you were, well, not old yet, are especially welcome.

Yup, those guidelines look fine to me. And yeah, I can see that requiring first person will add to the "reality/truth" feel of the collection. To be honest, though, I don't think this is something I'd write for. I quite honestly don't put any of myself in my stories, and wouldn't be comfortable writing about myself. And I don't want to make up a complete pack of lies and then lie to you and pretend it's true. Does that make sense?

Deej, you know you're still a kid from my perspective. I started out to say "when we were, well, not old yet" but thought that might give an erroneous impression. I've been old for quite a while.

FWIW, Sacch, you never come across as old. Not a bit.

Thanks, Baker. I'm not even grown up yet, just excessively lived-in.

I have to admit, I always see Sacch in my mind as being about 34 ;-)
