Obsessions and Attachments: Short Story Market Monday

Short Story Market Monday


We are entering the second phase of the year – April, May, and June.  Time really does fly by as we are in the end of the third month of the year.  So many of us had dreams of what our lives would look like by now.  Some of you thought you’d be published by now, and others have published a story only to wonder what they’re going to do next in their life.  Tomorrow is a new day. Rather than obsess and create unhealthy attachments to your dreams of yesterday, keep your focus on the now.

I know what it’s like to create goals and only to have them bumped down the “to do” list.  The passion and desire kind of flicker into an unrecognizable flame.  The good news is that the flame is still there.  Instead of writing 7 things to get done, I obsess and attachment my desire to 3 things.  Once I get those three things completed, I celebrate.

Yes, you read that right.  I go out and celebrate.  This is important because life is about the small steps that lead you to the big steps.

No matter what is on your “to do” list, know that I have found 5 paying markets that want your story today.  Are you thinking about a story you wrote a while back, but needed a home for it today?  No worries, I’ve got your back!

Craft those thoughts into some compelling short stories because there are 5 paying markets that want your story today!  Click on the link and check them out.
