So I've written a blog post that covers twelve things you should ask yourself (or do) before submitting your story to a publishing market. I really hope it helps you guys :)

georgespisak.wordpress.com/201…
Fourth publication is in the tubes for you guys! I'll let you know when I know more :)
So I'm starting up a literary magazine. I'll have more details to come once they've been fine-tuned and figured out. 
Thank you guys for all the birthday wishes yesterday :) I really do appreciate it. I found out one of my favourite authors is continuing her trilogy that ended in 2008 (Cornelia Funke, her Inkworld series) so that had me freaking out all over the place. Then I found out another one of my favourite authors (Brom) already came out with a new book! Which, I immediately purchased. So it was a pretty good day as a whole. 

On to the writing news! 
I still haven't heard word on when my newest publication, Real Doll, is coming out. But I am going to pre-warn all of my watchers interested in reading it: this is not a story for anyone under the age of 18. It deals with necrophilia. As most of my watchers know, I am not a fan of censoring my own writing and refuse to put up content labels. That is a personal choice of mine. That doesn't mean I will not dispense a content warning when one is validated. This publication will be available as a free PDF download to everyone (there will also be a physical version you can purchase and have shipped to your home). So read at your own discretion. I will not be held responsible for you reading this publication and then being upset about the content. 

My first publication, Dryad, came out October 21st. It is featured in a magazine that offers both physical and digital copies. So you have two options. If you're not too sure about purchasing the issue, you can read my blurb about Dryad on my writer's blog: georgespisak.wordpress.com/201…

In regards to my writing blog: every Friday (usually around noon my time), I post a blog post. Usually about writing/being a writer. There will also be story blurbs, project updates (like my novel, the Underneath), and short stories published on the blog. DA will be getting the short stories that are posted on my blog. If the short story is written for a DA contest, then the story will be posted on DA first. If the story is part of a writing challenge found on another person's blog, then it'll be posted on my blog first. Either way, both DA and my blog will be getting the same free content uploaded. It's just a matter of timing. 

Onto the big news! 
I'm working on my first self-published project. I'm currently working with an illustrator to create a horror picture book for adults. I'll be writing a blog post about it in the coming weeks and will be linking that post on my DA page. I'm really excited about this project and I'm hoping it'll be successful! Wish me the best of luck! 

I hope you're all having a wonderful week.

Claire's Fairies
Hello! Long time, no writing! I've been working a lot on publishing short stories, so I haven't really gotten around to writing them for DA. I decided that I needed to remedy this immediately. So I present to you: Clarie's Fairies. 

I'm submitting this short as part of the November CVil War contest. The challenge was to write a story about someone telling a tale under 3,000 words. This entry clocks in at 1,376. So I'm well under my word limit. You can find the contest and the original journal here: fav.me/daol5s1 Honestly guys, it's a fantastic and fun contest. I really recommend giving it a go if you have a chance. The contest closes on December 9th! So there's still plenty of time to get something banged out!

Preview image is a photograph I shot on my Pentax ME Super with 35mm film. I'll be uploading a file of it without the text for all of you who like it. Have fun reading!

For Feedback  
I'm wondering how the characters came across in this short and if they feel like they could be real people. I'm also wondering if the past events that I presented through Sam make sense and are clear. Is the overall plot working for you/making you want to read more? First person isn't my strong suit, does the perspective come across naturally?

For those of you who don't know, I aspire to be a published artist (of some sort) and consider myself a dabbler in many trades. I've spent my years picking and choosing what I enjoy and what I hate in regards to creativity. I've found that I enjoy a lot of different things and have currently decided to re-boot my writing process with the hopes of eventual publication of a novel (or a thousand).
In the mean time, I'm currently studying film production and anthropology at university with the intended goal of graduating with my BFA and BA. While working on this goal, I'm writing and planning and expressing myself in many mediums.

You can easily contact me here on DA through notes and comments as well as my YouTube channel or Instagram. DA is where I post production stills and written works while YouTube is where you can catch all of my short films.
