Idol Minor - The Playground - Week 2 - Day 5

We are halfway through our first season of Idol Minor!

I hope everyone is having fun - and letting other people know about what's going on here. Sure, it's taking place in Idol proper. But that doesn't always mean folks are paying attention.

I think our young talent have a lot to be proud of with their creations and I'd love more people to see them!

Entry count: 19,968. 32 entries to go until we hit 20,000! I'm not sure it will happen during Idol Minor, but it definitely will during the mini-season.

What did you do during your extended weekend?

I will have to come here and catch up on reading when I can! :)

Umm, looks like not much of anyone is going to see this, but well - I sent one of my Idol stories out to a magazine, and Sunday I got the acceptance letter. :) I didn't even edit it first or anything!

I got tired of my main Seth story being rejected so I was like "Let's try something else", and scored on the first try. :)

Granted, it's a token pay online magazine, but I read an article saying that it was an acceptable market for just starting out. And hey, you need some publishing credits before the higher end markets will pay attention.

Don't downplay it - it's an achievement and you should be rightfully proud! Especially with no extra polish! Yes, add add add to your "published" credits and it will make a difference. Don't forget to flock your entry, if you haven't already!

Tell us when it's released so we can hit it!! :)

I friend locked the entry before submitting, no worries.

My plan was to edit it before sending it out again if it was rejected, but then it wasn't so hey. :) Sending it in the first place was very much a yolo I'm done with Seth being rejected let's see if they'll take my other stuff spur of the moment thing.

I will! I think their next issue is in August.

What bleodswean said and I'll add that even "token pay" is still pay! :)

Absolutely!

Speaking of copies though, let me know when it is available so that I can direct people to go buy it!
