As sort of an offshoot from the blog chain which we've been doing this month I wrote a detailed post on my blog today called "The Life of a Story: Idea to Publication." As the title suggests, it describes my own process/suggestions for taking a story through its lifecycle. A lot of this will be familiar ground for people in this forum, but I am hoping that there are some people who will find it useful and also that there may be helpful comments from veteran write/submit people.

I spoke with Izz and it was suggested to me that a thread for posting short fiction and Write 1/Sub 1 related blog posts could be started. This would be a place where we could let each other know about blog posts which we think would be on-topic to the forum.
