I'll second Jim in saying that PDF's are about the worst to letter with. If we do get one, and it does happen- then a polite mail requesting a more letterer friendly version is asked for as well.

I've knocked up a fair few short stories this year, more than 2017 and 2018 combined, and though i'm content with several of them (and despise a few more but hey-ho) i'm still struggling to get over my anxiety of putting my work out there.

Getting rejected for a few zines earlier this year didn't help my confidence none, and I only hope I don't sound like i'm taking criticism too harshly, I welcomed the feedback. It just makes me feel a tad like my stories aren't worth telling.

Just posted off my first submission to the House of Tharg in more than 15 years.

(Sorry, I did the dialogue in CAPS).
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Can't believe it had been that long actually. I was thinking it was about 5 years.

And can't believe how shit and immature  previous submissions were.

You can pre-order Alan Moore's writing course at the BBC. Not cheap at £80, but you'll probably be hard-pressed to find better writing advice.
