StoryADay May FAQs
Posted by Story A Day on Friday, April 28, 2017
Here’s a FB Live I did earlier to address this question. If you don’t like video, there’s a written answer below.
Also, I’m around all weekend, answering questions and soothing nerves. Just post questions in the comments here or in the community (or at Facebook) and I’ll get to them on and off over the weekend. Consider this my “Office Hours”!!
The Short Answer
In brief: you don’t submit stories to me, you just write them.
The Slightly-Longer Answer
If you want to post them somewhere, you can do so at your own blog and post links to those in the forums, or post directly in the forums.
BUT I would encourage you to consider keeping them private for now, and just engaging with people about the writing process.
Two reasons: one is that if you post something online, it is considered ‘published’ and if you ever want to publish it somewhere else, many markets won’t accept something that has been available online.
But also, everything we write this month will be very first draft-y, and that’s no necessarily how you want to share your work.
I’m working on a critique session to follow this up, in the summer, so you might want to watch for that announcement if you’re interested in feedback.
