Lucky 13

          Bylines  2013 calendar is almost closed for submissions. If you want to check out the guidelines, go here. It's quite a helpful site. There are even a few examples of the kind of pieces they want. 

This is the 2012 Bylines calendar.

       I sent a submission a month or so ago. I've got another one I'm almost finished with. And since the deadline is tomorrow (at midnight) I am sure I will be up until an unreasonably late hour 10 or so, writing a third.
      They welcome all genres. That means you, Shay, could get your spirits working to compose several submissions. (You might even be able to bring Emily into your piece.)
        Lisa, you're so wonderful at inspiring others. I know you have a submission in you.
        Zandrea, here is your chance.  It's short (300 words, which includes your bio). Send it to me tonight or tomorrow; I'll be glad to help you with it. 
        My WWWP peeps--you better send something off. (Lynn, you could create a "letter" to your inner critic?)
       Marcia, Rebeca, Becky, Donna, Barb, Val and all my other blogging and writing friends...Surrender and submit.
       (And Sylvia Forbes...You might get tired of seeing my emails pop up in the next two days, but at least I'm trying.)


  1. Thanks for the push, Sioux! I actually did submit to this for the first time this year; didn't realize they allow multiples (should have paid closer attention to the guidelines). I do believe I have another I can shoot off to them. :)

  2. Hi Sioux,
    Thanks for the reminder.
    You are a great motivator; I'm a greater procrastinator.

  3. Lisa--I had better check that out. If they DON'T accept more than one submission, I won't work on another one tonight. (Perhaps it's ME that needs to check the guidelines closer.)

    Donna--I'm the Queen of Procrastination. That's why I'm up late at night, working on last-minute submissions.

  4. And it's a very worthy publication, too. Thanks for the reminder, and good luck!

  5. Procrastination? Should I not do that? Because if somebody had told me when I first started submitting stuff that this thing is frowned upon...

    My fingers are willing but my experience is weak. Alas, I have not been published. Nor paid for my writing. It seems I am like the proverbial cow, never to be purchased, because I give away my milk for free.

    Thanks for the shout-out, though!

  6. Sioux, you probably know this already, but yes, they do accept multiples. I had already submitted something, but after your post I submitted a second. Thanks!

  7. Well Sioux I submitted, but saw this post too late to submit a second - I had hard enough time getting one in - ha. For some reason I was thinking you just sent in one. Oh well.


Thanks for your comments. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by...
