SW 011 - Refurbishing a Short Story for a New Market

February 11, 2019

In this episode I talk about how I take an old short story with bones that I like and update it for a new anthology market.

I touch on the lessons I've learned about genre alignment since I wrote the story back in 2016 and how I address the various issues to make it fresh. And if the story doesn't get picked up by the new market? I've got other options as well.

(I also lament the writing time I've lost to Far Cry 5, but I did blow up a lot of virtual stuff.)
