lit: a place for short stories? (And for you to get published.)


So this used to be a site where I posted stories about my kids, and pictures of them, and poems I liked.

Then it was a sports blog.

And now it's this:

lit

a place for short stories

 because I have this year not been as crazy about sports as I have been about short stories: I've written more short stories than I have watched sporting events this year, and I've been reading, and listening to, short stories more and more, ranging from classics like Cheever's to one-offs from other people, and I've decided that I'm going to do this for a while now; instead of posting short stories on my other sites and/or saving them up to publish, I'm going to post them on this site.

And I'm going to take your submissions, too.  Want to write a short story? And have it posted here? I don't know why you would, given that if you can read this you can post your own story to your own blog, but I'd like to see your stories, too, and if you want to send them to me, you can, by emailing me your story to:

thetroublewithroy[at]yahoo.com.

put "lit" or "submission" in the subject line and hopefully I'll see it.  If I like it, I'll offer to run it here and I'll pay you -- not a lot, unless this site starts making more money -- but I'll pay you.  And if enough people submit stories to me here, then annually, or maybe more often, I'll publish a lit anthology of the best stories that year and you'll make some more money and more publicity.

So it's mostly for me, but a little for you.

Watch for stories to be posted here as often as I feel like posting them.  I'll start by re-running some of my already-blogged stories from other sites, as I get the chance.

(Oh, and those sports posts I did? I'll leave 'em here, so don't mind them. They're harmless.)

Well, I don't quite believe you about the sports posts being harmless, but I'll take your word for it for the moment.

It's too bad I don't really write short stories, but I will tell my son about it. In fact, I will probably just send you my favorite story of his, but I need to wait to ask him about it when he gets back from camping.
