Unfading Daydream is a literary magazine that strives to feature the genres that inspired us to start writing (science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc.). We want to showcase stories of all types – from romantic, to platonic – and especially ones featuring LGBTQ+ themes. Unfading Daydream will be published on a quarterly basis.
Unfading Daydream is a venture that Adelei Wade and I are taking on. We want to find a way to feature writers – both experienced and inexperienced – who write in the genres we love (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, etc). Genre fiction doesn’t always get the love in the publishing world that literary fiction does…yet there are plenty of amazing stories out there. We want to find those stories.
That’s where you guys come in~
We’re just about to open our first submission period! This means you’d have the opportunity to be published in the first issue of Unfading Daydream.
We are open to established and new, emerging authors.
In terms of length, we’re looking for stories between 1000 and 7000 words. Shorter or longer stories will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
No previously published works.
No fanfiction, please
Reading periods are May, August, November, and February.
All submissions must be in by 11:59pm CST on the last day of the reading period. In this case, all submissions must be in by 11:59pm CST on May 31st.
While we are brand new, we are offering monetary payment to those who we accept for publication. Stories that are between 1000-3000 words will receive $5. Stories that are longer than that will receive $10. All contributors receive a hard copy of the magazine.
We accept submissions only by email.
Free to submit!
Please send your submission to submit [at] unfadingdaydream [dot] com with the title of ‘Unfading Daydream Submission’.
We are also seeking submissions for cover art.
Thank you, we look forward to seeing the submissions!
Hey all! I’m getting back into the swing of things. This month has not been the best in terms of writing. Maybe I bit off more than I could chew, or maybe I was just a little burned out. Not sure. I’m starting to get back into it though.
Exciting news – I’m going to be at Odyssey Con this weekend! And for the first time ever, I’m going as a panelist. I’m usually pretty shy and reserved when it comes to talking in front of people, but maybe a geeky topic will make me less anxious. I’ll be out there on Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be on a Harry Potter panel, two writing panels, and I’m running an Overwatch panel all by my lonesome!
Also! Patreon suggestions for the month of April close on the 26th! The post with all the information can be found: HERE! Check things out~
Anyway, the topic of today’s post is organization in writing. It’s one that I’ve been meaning to talk about but never really felt qualified to do so. I’m not really good at the whole organization thing, at least in general. There are a series of tweets about me forgetting character details or losing information on them. I’m totally a professional. But here goes!
Hey all! Things are going pretty well out in my neck of the woods, though I guess it’s been awhile since I worked on this post as, well, I started it in February. I had laryngitis around then, really nasty case, I sounded great. Now though? Depression is kind of kicking my ass.
But I’ve been hard at work these past few months! In fact, despite having fewer days, February has had more words written during it than January did. So I think that means I’m getting back into the swing of things. March was really great in terms of productivity as well – I even published Opus Crescendo! April has been a bit rockier because of conventions, depression, and various other things.
Productivity, novels, and realizations though. That’s the topic today. It’s pretty broad, and I’m pretty sure that I had other things in mind when I started writing this. Unfortunately, my short term memory is crappy and I didn’t write down what I intended to go through. So now you guys get today’s interpretation of this blog. Continue reading →
