WHAT MADE THESE STORIES STAND OUT TO US?
We chose these selections because they are tightly written, well-edited, and show creative innovation. They’re not the same stories we’ve read hundreds of times, changed “just enough” to avoid being carbon copies of something else. All three of these authors were open to extensive editorial suggestion and made their early drafts available to the Fiction Workshop at MSP. This is not a requirement for curation by the Steemhouse Fiction Trail, but the Workshop may be a good resource for people interested in being picked by our team. Remember, we are only interested in curating polished, marketable work. A story may show promise, but if it is poorly edited, it will not qualify for our project. The blockchain is permanent. Once a post is locked down after seven days, any editing gaffes and lazy writing is there for the world to see—forever. And that’s not what we want, nor should it be what writers want.
These three curated stories will appear today in the SFT Library at http://sftlibrary.com/
Just a relic, shoved in the crack of an old house with an old history. It means something, but what? Janice may wish she had never wondered, but at least restoring her new home to the glory of its past won’t be a problem.
