I wait until the entire story is written.  I've been known to start
stories and then set them aside because of writer's block, though.

Great!  What's your story called?  Is it in the vampire genre?

I got brave and sent a few poems to a magazine (Fables).  The editor
decided he didn't want the ones I sent, but went to my web site
(where I have a poetry page) and selected two other ones to be
published this fall.  Then he suggested I send my other poems to a
different magazine that I've never heard of, probably because it's
based in New Mexico and I'm in Minnesota.  I had done a web search on
poetry magazines and found the first one that way.  I'm crossing my
fingers on the other poems.

Sorry!  I thought I had sent this personally instead.  I even hit the
stop button on my web browser as I realized the default address was
forkni-l and  I didn't get the message that said it was sent.  Stupid
