Inspired by the pressure this thread put me under to actually submit to the anthology, I started a new thread to try to inspire others (and myself) in the same way.

I completely agree. If anyone decides to put up their story on the internet somewhere (which is completely allowed under submission rules), please to be posting link here.

I put one of mine up on my blog, but it's probably the worst of all the entries from MWC. http://epicureaninkblot.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/death-camp-an-mod-story/ :( However, I'm just glad I finally wrote something and submitted it, so I'm still happy about the amateur effort.

And now the waiting. The editor is really right when he says that having anotherproject to work on will make the wait easier.

EDIT: Response date listed as October something.

Interesting update here on submissions for the anthology: http://machineofdeath.net/v2-summary

Judging by the number of entries they have received, if your story is accepted, you will have done REALLY well!

Btw, don't forget that the Kindle Kash Sci-Fi Short Story Contest is open to entries until Friday 2 September. Check out the rules in this topic.

I have just been to the MOD blog for the first time since I submitted and I found The MOD Song. I like it.

Now I've found it - didn't realise you could zoom in. Of course, I've probably damaged my eyesight searching for it but at least it means they got my story!

Just checked the site and they say there'll email everyone who submitted so it''ll be more likely the end of the week.
