by archie nicholson (where to read what archie writes)

I am pleased to say I am officially a paid published writer!!! YAY.

I started this blog in 2017, and had been writing for longer than that.
There are ups-and-downs with writing, but so are there with life too.
Part of the job as a writer is dealing with rejection.
I get regularly rejected by publishers and lost my fair share of writing contests too.

Sometimes there are good reasons to have your story rejected – looking back, I agree with the editors (mostly) and I aspire to write better stories.
Other times rejection comes because art is subjective, and maybe your work is not yet ready to be shared, still needs to find the right reader…

Alright then, here is everywhere that has published my writings, so far:

BABBLEby archie nicholson
in Building Community: Select Stories and Poems from the 34th Annual NCWC (Paperback) – March 2021.
by CAA-NCR, Edited by Sherrill Wark
100th Year CAA Writing Contest!

THE NIGHT BEFOREby archie nicholson
in 6 Good Things About 2020: Collective Folk Fiction Short Story Competition (Kindle) — March 2021
by Greater Grander
~ Runner Up Short Story ~

I write (and read) in a variety of fiction genres, depending on my mood and inspirations, because a good story is a good story however it’s told.
I write short stories, sometimes as science fiction, or fantasy fiction, children’s fiction, YA fiction, mystery fiction, romance fiction, horror fiction, literary fiction and occasionally even non-fiction.

Of my published writing, everything so far qualifies as short story fiction.
I am currently writing longer novels, but they remain still works in progress for me – stay tuned by subscribing!

As always, thanks for reading.
