Updates on ‘Soon’

All right, so I said I was sending this puppy off to The Cincinnati Review, and like as might I will, but not quite yet.

You see, my dear editor Natalie is editor-in-chief of the Scripps College Journal at (gasp) Scripps College. I published my short story “Forgetting Mia Martin” there last year, and intend to submit “Hunting Plums” soon. “Hunting Plums” was always intended for SCJ, but I’ve recently decided that I may as well put “Soon” up too. If the fiction editors like “Soon” better, well, “Hunting Plums” is more likely to get published somewhere else anyway. And if it’s a low year, they might even publish both, as both are quite short.

I’ll let you know how it goes, naturally. This will mean, of course, that I won’t be submitting either of these pieces to other literary magazines until I hear back from SCJ, but it also frees me up more time to work on editing “Make-Believe” and finish writing some of my short stories. Not to mention all the novellas, novels, and fan fiction projects on my plate. YEESH. 😀
