I made it through 10 weeks of my first graduate level Fiction course. I can’t believe how much I learned in such a short time. My teacher advised us, however, that posting stories to blogs counts as being published. Therefore, publishers and writing contests who stipulate that they only will accept unpublished pieces would not accept a story that appears on a blog.
Therefore, I will have to adjust my format and write about writing – which is fun also!
I also really enjoy critiquing others’ writing and answering questions, so feel free to pose questions for discussion. I think it could help a lot of people.
Best of luck on the journey!
