Working on several short stories for anthologies. Far from being restricting, I find it refreshing to write a story with specific guidelines in mind. Also, in addition to payment, anthologies usually send you a free copy, so it's great to get some free literature! Lots of great anthos coming up. I got my sights set on five of them. Then it's back to trying to crack a pro sale.
Also, I've added a link to my Facebook page on the left. I never thought I'd have on of those, but it's a great way to connect with fellow writers and to get the freshest news in the biz! If you don't have one, you should definitely set one up.
