I thought I sounded terrible, but I guess its one of those things that you hate the sound of your own voice. Not ideal that I had to split it into five parts, but the maximum size of a video is 2mb, which equates to about two minutes. I guess I could just read really fast! Really appreciate the encouragement though. (more) and gained+3

It's a really unpretentious look at how to get writing. Or in my case, get writing again. The good thing abot King is that he's a popular, mainly genre, writer who cares about writing - which is just as important as having great literary writers, I think. (more) and won+3

I will definitly look into some of these. I really appreciate your help. I've had a few stories published in small press fanntasy/dark fiction magazines, but I really want to try and place some more non genre writing and, maybe, try and step things up a gear. Thanks again. Matthew (more) and gained+3

Some really good Canadian magazines (yes, I'm showing my patriotic bias! :) are: 'PRISM International', 'Prairie Fire', 'The Antigonish Review', and 'EVENT'. Also 'Grain'. Regardless, you should definitely check out this website: "Duotrope's Digest":http://www.duotrope.com/ It's phenomenally helpful. Hope this gives you a start, anyway! Amanda (more) and received+3
