Anthologies seeking submissions - August 2012 edition

I managed to get my short story written for last month. A contemporary flash piece that's unusual for me, but I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. I submitted another short story to an ezine. So I'm keeping up with my write 1/submit 1 goal for this year.

I'm going to finish up my YA steampunk story for August. It will be at least 5500 words, so I've got a lot to write on it yet. The anthology is still accepting submissions if you're interested.

    1. The Drabbler is a triannual contest. Ralan.com says it's open until the end of August even though the link looks like it hasn't been updated.

  7. Lots of places looking for stories. Cool.

    I had my fingers on the wrong keys when I typed the first word. Instead of 'Lots' I got 'Kites'. I looked at the screen, and was like "Kites?" It took me a minute to realize what had happened.

    Good thing it's Friday!
