New fiction posted on Simily

I’ve recently been doing a bit of investigation around the different platforms that are popping up for sharing written work. The reason for this is that I’ve had a short story sitting around on my computer that I’m pretty happy with, but I couldn’t find a place to put it. It’s been bounced from a couple of magazines with people saying it’s not there thing, and I feel pretty fine about that. Some of the other magazines that I was interesting in sending it too are still closed to submissions for now following the pandemic, and I’m I feel like I want to get it out there and move on to the next thing. It’s also bit long to post as a blog post, and I feel like my website may not be the best place to get it seen.

So, I’m trying out the new fiction sharing platform Simily, where I have posted my short story ‘Old Grey Beard’. The platform is currently trying to build up a membership and readershi base, and aim to connect readers with good stories and writers with a paying audience. At the moment if you read my story there, whether you decide to sign up to the platform or not, I’ll get paid $0.02 per view (reading for more than 5 second), so if you are interested in reading some of my work I’d appreciate it if you would head on over there and have a read.

I think I’m going to try it out for the next year or so and see how I get on. I don’t write that many shorts and I kind of struggle with them a bit so it may be a good way of getting a bit of feedback from people who don’t know and like me, which would be a great help too. So, I hope to see you over there, any and all comments greatly recieved!

Thank you for reading. I also write, make art and films. If you are interested in the process of creativity and want to get a copy of my free short book of creative prompts, and to hear more about my writing projects please join my mailing list here. You can see my films at my YouTube channel here. You can see things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying. If buying art is not your thing, but you would like to support what you see I also have a Patreon page here
