Eek!

I couldn't decide how to label this post. I figured either:

'Eek!' - as in 'OMG! I've just submitted my first piece to Shroud Publishing's Northern Chills anthology';

or...

'Phew!" - as in 'Thank God, I've finished my first attempt at getting into the Northern Chills anthology'.

Now of course I'm questioning - is this something someone would read around the campfire? And if so, you better have a loaded gun because I wouldn't trust the boy. The story is titled: The Dreadful Guise of Red Berries, is 695 words and I'm hoping they don't include the title in the word count as that would make it 701 words. Double-Eek!

I'm now off to compose something a little odd...

P.S. New England is beautiful.

I don't think titles typically get counted with text for wordcounts. Good luck on the sub!

Lets hope not. :)

Good luck with that and nice title!

(I don't count titles in word count for what it's worth)
