Flasher and Grinder

A second rejection for Hitch arrived last week. It’s now out with a market that was probably a mistake; they get so many submissions, they want 90 days. I should’ve gone with a smaller market.

At least I have an idea of how to find one, now. Through my explorations of the Intorwebs, I found The (Submission) Grinder. They’re attempting to fill in the hole left by Duotrope going behind a paywall, so I’m less upset about finding out about Duotrope when their switch to a paysite was news. I’ve found several new potential markets, including some that want flash fiction.

I’ve never even tried to write flash before, so this weekend I gave it a shot. I like what I got, so we’ll see what happens when I submit it. Anyone up for a beta-read?
