D is for Daily

For the month of April, all of my "A to Z" posts are directly related to my writing: the markets where I submit my work, in particular.

Looking for another high-paying F & SF magazine? Here's what Daily Science Fiction would like to see from you:

"Daily Science Fiction (DSF) is a market accepting speculative fiction stories from 100 to 10,000 words in length. By this we mean science fiction, fantasy, slipstream, etc. All that fits under the broader science fiction umbrella. We have a special need for flash fiction, stories of 1,000 or fewer words. We love long fiction. We look forward to reading your novelettes, your long short stories and your other novelties. However, if you want to get published in Daily Science Fiction, brevity may better serve your purposes. We need flash fiction, and a lot of it. Among our featured stories, a shorter tale will get an extra nudge on the scale when weighed against a longer one. This is both for financial reasons and because it matches the preferences of a plurality of our readership. Not fair? Perhaps. Consider yourself forewarned."

Pro:  a pro-paying online market (8 cents per word!) with a user-friendly submission form; response time is usually 7 days or less

Con:  form-letter rejections (so UNhelpful), but I understand they'd be swamped otherwise

So far, I've submitted six of my stories to Daily Science Fiction over the past year, and while they have yet to accept any of my work, I refuse to give up. Two of my fellow writer/bloggers have been fortunate enough to see their work published @ DSF, and I plan to do my darnedest to join their ranks this year.

Thanks for visiting; enjoy the next "D" stop on your A to Z tour!
