Fortnightly update 60: 14.03.2022 to 27.03.2022

In this series, I share my fortnight-to-fortnight triumphs (and failures) as a writer. Despite all the ups and downs, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Short fiction

I’m currently submitting short fiction, mostly flash fiction and short stories, to online magazines and such for publication. I submitted two stories this fortnight and have gotten to the short list of an excellent publication, so fingers crossed!

Here are this fortnight’s stats:

Submissions: 2
Pending: 6
Rejections: 0
Acceptances: 0
Rejections 2022: 6

Spinning Yarns

My mate Patrick and I recently released our podcast Spinning Yarns with Nick & Paddy, which is about storytelling in all its forms. Episode 7 went live this fortnight. Paddy reads one of my flash fiction pieces previously published by Cross & Cross Keys, a poem about life and death, and an essay about Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, and we talk a lot of crap. It’s a belter. Check it out!


Copywriting: Frontier Media

I write scripts for Frontier Media, a media production company specialising in YouTube content. Our two largest channels are The Front and Geetsly’s, and while I’ve written a little for Geetsly’s in the past, I mostly write for The Front and our new, smaller channel The Braved. Four of my videos went up this fortnight. I especially love the video on the Philippine–American War. It was an absolutely brutal conflict.

And here are my total stats:

Videos for The Front: 124
Videos for The Braved: 60


This fortnight was a little slow because of some personal stuff, and the next probably will be too, but all I have to do is keep swimming. I’ll find the current soon.

Thanks for reading <3
