Lighthouse_biggerAnd another Twitter fiction market is cracked! This was a bit more of a challenge, as Outshine require tweets involving optimistic, near-future science fiction, and it’s so much easier to write dystopian stuff. But it was worth persevering with, as they pay $5 per tweet – which, in this case, works out at just under 23¢ a word. And there aren’t many markets out there that pay that kind of rate, are there? My piece goes up on Saturday December 12th, and I’ll link to it then.

    Thanks! Although I do vaguely feel like I’m stamp collecting at the moment. TwitFic is a very odd market.

    Looking forward to that, Jonathan. A neat system, eh? Good going. Neil

    Thanks, Gay! For once I feel like I’m on the leading edge here :)

    Congrats! :)

    I too collect Twitter!fiction acceptances. So far, I’ve gotten Tweet the Meat and Outshine.

    Surprisingly enough, Twitfic is really helping with my plotting abilities. You need a precise beginning, middle, and end to sell fiction through Twitter. I’ve been writing like a woman possessed since I began my Twitfic odyssey. I hope it’s the same for you.

    (Your blog–which I just found tonight, hello, nice to meet you!–has led me to some new markets. Thank you for that!)

    Hi, J, and thanks for dropping in! I’ve been wondering about the effect that Twitfic has been having on my writing, too. I’m sure my editing has sharpened up since I’ve been doing this, for one thing.
