I got the news bulletin–via one of the writers’ forums I belong to–that Tor will be open to unsolicited novella submissions starting October 16th. Here’s the link. 20-40,000 words, high fantasy, set in a world that isn’t modeled on European cultures.
Well… I’m not all that sword-and sorcery to begin with. Kriss and sorcery? Panga and Sorcery? (The page from Tor says “sword”.)
I like a little tech mixed in with my fiction.
Well, never mind. They’re going to rotate through other genres in the future.
The thing is, 20k really isn’t that much. Less than half of a nano-novel. And Tor will be open for three months. If I were organized (I’m not.), and really good at revising (getting there). I might be able to write specifically for a call like that.
It sounds like the kind of challenge that might help me to write in a more organized, more linear fashion. Not… honestly, that I’m thinking of making it a high-fantasy spur-of-the-moment novella.
