The Singularity

Those lovely people at The Singularity magazine have accepted a second story of mine for publication. This is fantastic news, for me anyway, getting 2016 off to a wonderful start as far as writing goes.

Recently I have been taking the scattergun approach, partially by choice and partially because I don’t want to miss out on anything. I read J.G Ballard’s ‘The Drowned World’ a while ago,( after I had written a 60 odd thousand word novel) and at the end was a little Q and A session. I don’t know who was asking the questions, but one thing Ballard said about writing was that, at the beginning of a writing career, a person should write many short stories in different genres to see which fits best – for how can one know what genre is the correct one if you haven’t tried them? I’m not quoting him correctly and I suggest if you want the real thing, then get a copy of The Drowned World – just read it anyway, it’s a fabulous book. Anyhow, I set about writing; horror stories, a romance(of sorts), Steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, more horror, and some stuff that I don’t know what on earth genre they fit into. I submitted left, right and centre to online magazines; there are a lot out there and they all want different things, so it’s a good idea to keep trawling.

I like the look of The Singularity, there is something tells me that this is going to be a success. By the way, if you’re an avid reader of sci-fi, not a writer, you might wish to contribute as a patron to this new online magazine. Just go to their webpage and follow the directions on the Updates page.
