Get Paid! AND Microfiction Monday
My followers topped over 100 this weekend! Yay! Thanks, everyone!
Did you know there are paying markets for your microfiction? Those 140 character gems might earn you a buck or two. More on that below. For now, thanks to Susan at Stony River for hosting Microfiction Monday. Here is the picture for this week and my two stories (each 140 characters or less) to accompany it.
Two paying markets for your 140-character-or-less stories are Thaumatrope ($1.20 per microfiction) and Nanoism ($1.50 unpublished, $1.00 previously available online). The payment is roughly equivalent to $0.05 per word. You won’t retire with millions, but after a few sales you’ll have earned enough for a trip through Starbucks’ drive-through. And you’ll have a blast writing microfiction in the process.
If you have a minute, please scroll down two blog postings to my February 16th post titled: “Book Blurb: Your Opinion is Requested.” I’m considering starting a Friday meme and would like to have you vote on whether or not you might participate. There is a polling widget on the post to make it easy to render your opinion anonymously.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m looking forward to reading the other microfiction stories.
My blog contest ends on midnight, Friday February 25th, so there’s still time to participate. The winners will be announced next Monday the 28th. For details, click the contest tab under the blog header.
