Edith's post is excellent. She quotes such good advice from seasoned short story writers such as Della Galton. I agree that if you feel in your heart that your story isn't right, then it probably isn't - don't send it.
Thank you so much for re-blogging my post. I'm so chuffed, like the cat whose licked the cream really!! But more than anything, thank you to all of you lovely ladies who share your expertise and knowledge so willingly and generously. Without all of the advice I have learned from you all I wouldn't have had the nerve to even try. Love and hugs to all, xxx
I love that quote from the editor about a good short story bringing a smile to the face and a lump to the throat. It's exactly that I strive for when I write womag stories. It's a phrase to keep in mind I think, doesn't everyone else?
