In an earlier blog I mentioned that if you’re good at something… NEVER DO IT FOR FREE! This is just my personal opinion, but I’ve always felt that if you’re going to put in work on something, you should be compensated for your time. There’s nothing wrong with charity, but just giving away your work for no reason isn’t necessarily the way I’d go about it.
I would personally stop posting these ‘story blogs’ until you have some sort of coherent story. My advice to you is to get on MS word (or whatever Mac’s equivalent word processor is) and write out a few of these blog posts without posting them. If they evolve into short stories, then I might consider actually getting them published.
Consider it, put all these short stories together behind one cover, title it, get them edited and put them out there either on Nook, KDP, or through traditional publish sources.
So I know that this really doesn’t answer your question, but it’s personally the best advice I can give. Sporadically posting parts of raw stories can hurt your writing in the long run. There are online and print magazines out there that are always looking to publish new short stories. A quick google search will bring up a few selections
So hopefully this helps.
Readers, what do you think? Should Supratik continue posting on WordPress, find another site, or get her writing together and then consider getting her stories published?
Do you have a question about writing, publishing, my stories, etc? Please feel free to post a comment or email me.
I’ll use those comments to select my next blog post.
I have been writing for several years, have 4 published works, experience with publishing and independent work, so I can hopefully be of assistance.
Please note, I only do one of these a day and will do my best to respond to everyone, but it may take some time.
Also, feel free to check out my works of Fantasy and Historical Fiction, Available on Amazon and where ever books are sold. See the link below:
Catch you on the flip side!
