New Anthology Combines Music with Fantasy/Sci fi!

I just saw a post on Live Journal in the specific markets section for writers about this new anthology. They are accepting submissions for a fantasy/sci fi story with a music theme!

It's called "Music for Another World." And here's the link.This anthology seems so perfect for me! I'm brainstorming ideas like crazy right now trying to come up with a way to use music as an integral part of a fantasy story. I'm thinking something along the lines of how music could magically be stronger than steel. My story title: Song of the Bard. I've played an actual piece of music called Song of the Bard, and it would be neat to set a story to it.

In other news, I'm not doing so well at NaNoWriMo. I have edits to work through for Nebula's Music and Chameleon's colors for my two ebook publishers this month, which has set me back. I like the way my story is developing, though it's slow going. I'm, also interested in Stephen's King's new book "Under the Dome." But I know if I buy it now, I'll get nothing done!

What do you think of this new anthology? How's your writing going?

Hey that new anthology seems perfect for you, good luck! NaNo isn't working out that fab for me either. I switched to my other manuscript and it is working out so much better, so I'm combining the two. That might be cheating, now that I think about it. :) So, my NaNo book is going in the drawer for the moment and it may come back out eventually but probably not for a couple months at least.

Hey Bethany!

I bet your NaNo book will come back eventually, but I'm glad that you decided to move on. Good luck with your writing and thanks for commenting!

Ooh I like your idea. Keep us posted on what you decide to do.
NaNo is going pretty good for me. I'm only at 30k words but I'm loving my story so far. I'm not worried about getting to 50k by the end of the month. If it happens, great. If not, I'll reach that mark in December. :)

That anthology sounds awesome! Right up your alley. I'm a sucker for stories with music as a major component. My writing is coming along. I'm not doing Nano, but I'm hoping to finish the book I'm working on by the end of the year. Last week didn't go so great, writing-wise, but I think I'll bounce back this week.

That anthology sounds wonderful. I'll have to whip up a story for it. As for Nano, I'm rewriting a story (so I guess I'm cheating) so it's coming along really well and easily. Good luck with your Nano story as well as for the new antho!

I always think it's great when literature incorporates other artistic endeavors : )

Nicole-I'd love it if you entered the same anthology! Some of my friends and I have amanaged to get into anthologies together and that makes them so much more special.

Thanks everyone for commenting!
