Onto the next projects! #amwriting #amediting

I’ve submitted my 1000 word short story to a magazine. Onto the next projects!

Rather than continuing with outlining my novel, I’ve decided to focus on revising and editing two of my other short stories.

One is a romance (3000 words) set in the Australian Outback. I completed this a few years ago and it’s been languishing in my filing cabinet. Time to polish it up for submission.

The other is a draft (currently around 1000 words) for a romance set on an italian island. This still needs a lot of work.

Excited to be progressing with both of these. Will keep you updated!


Short #story almost ready to submit! #amwriting

This week I’ve rewritten my short story (women’s fiction/1000 words) into the first person narrative. I’ve also formatted the manuscript in accordance with the submission guidelines for the magazine.

Just got to write the cover letter now. Then print it out, send it out and… wait it out!


Welcome to the blog of KJ Carine, fiction writer, blogger and daydreamer.

I plan to share and update my writing journey here.

Here’s my work in progress (May 2016):

– A thousand word short story written in the third person that I plan to rewrite (in the first person) and submit to a women’s magazine.

– An outline for the romance novel that I’ve always wanted to write.

Thanks for joining me here!
