WIP – Aiden’s story

Ok so Aiden’s story is coming along but it’s hit a little roadblock, namely the word count.

For those that dont know, Aiden’s story will be my first MM story and it was initially intended for an anthology submission. The problem is that the word count limit on the anthology stories is 30k and I’m almost certain that Aiden’s story will go over that.
At the moment the story is sitting at just over 22,500 words and there should be at least one more event happening before it starts to wind down. So you can see why I’m almost certain it will go over 30k.

I’ve given myself a end of May deadline to get it absolutely done AND self edited. I’d like to get it done sooner if possible so that it can be submitted to a publisher. The question I have to ask myself is, do I submit it to the same publisher (not as an anthology submission) or do I try another publisher?

But for now I’m going to take it one step at a time and focus on finishing the story. Then I can deal with the rest.
