Here's an old one, dating back to my days of aspiring to comic book work. Maybe someday...
Well, there's a new market in town --
I found out about them at John Scalzi's site last night. They specialize in fiction of one-hundred and forty characters or less. That's right -- characters.
The thing is, is that I've had a one-liner based on H.G. Wells's The Time Machine lurking in the back of my mind for a couple of months now. This meant that I was obligated to go and submit to them. A few minutes later another one appeared, and then another.
All three were accepted. They'll be appearing on December 20, 22, and 26.
But I've had to sign up for Twitter to do this. And I have no idea what the hell Twitter is and after looking at their site I'm not sure I'm capable of understanding Twitter.
And now I have to sign up for PayPal! Jesus, this is terrifying.
