Call for submissions: Shakespeare in Life, edited by Marissa Ames

Calling all writers: Missy Ames wants your best Shakespearean fiction! Stories about Will himself, or adaptations of his works into a different setting.

This can be defined in many ways. Maybe create a short story about a scene in Shakespeare’s life. Or take characters from one of his plays and write them a new story. Put a Shakespearean concept (or the man himself) into a modern day setting. If you’re really dedicated, write it all in iambic pentameter. But let’s go further than the high school theme, or even the modern-day love stories. That’s been done again… and again…

Low Views: Second-Chance Dance (1/23-1/29)

Every time you blog, you run the risk of not being heard. But nobody’s going to make fun of you for it, though it may feel like a wasted opportunity.

That’s when the Second-Chance Dance comes in.

Starting on Thursday and ending on Wednesday, I will collect up to 30 posts that you want to be promoted and feature them on my Twitter and WordPress. Sound good?

Here’s the Inlinkz. Click it and follow the instructions.

Let’s all be kind and give each post a click, like, follow, and extra points for a comment. This is a good way to network, and to expose yourself to different blogs.

A Heads Up: Blogspace and Solicitations for Submissions

Hello followers and bloggers. I am writing to apologize in advance for any annoyance with my posts in the future.
Once a day, probably in the morning, I will be posting solicitations for submissions to the blog, one of my anthologies, or another Anthology Club anthology. Only once a day, and only one at a time.
This way, there is at least a little variety to the solicitations, and you will be acquainted with what goes on in the world of CR Fowler’s writing backlog (which is rather filled to the brim, thanks for asking.)
Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for your patience. I just want to generate content for the masses; for you :).
