It was a struggle to get this particular idea down to fewer than 140 characters. Case in point: When I showed my first correct-length rough draft to my husband, he thought that it was a charming love story about two dogs.
I finally came up with a (very different) version that I liked and sent it in. My three previous Nanoism submissions had all been rejected within a week or two, so when I didn't hear back for a month, I got hopeful. When I didn't hear back for three months, however, I figured I should follow their instructions for lost submissions and send the story again...except I couldn't find my final version anywhere. Not in all my files, not in my email history... nowhere.
Then yesterday I received an email from the editor at Nanoism apologizing for the delay and letting me know that my story had been accepted and would be immediately published on the site. *Cue Surprised & Happy Dance!* It's an honor to appear on Nanoism, a site I've enjoyed reading since I first discovered twitter-fiction. Plus it's always nice when a situation rewards my tendency to procrastinate ;-P.
Thanks for reading and best of luck with your own writing, happy puppy love stories or otherwise!
