2015 October Platform Challenge: Day 21 – Research Markets

This came into my inbox: 2015 October Platform Challenge (link). I almost deleted it. Almost. Then the voice on my left shoulder (we’ll call him Muninn) cawed, “You have been wanting to work on this skill as long as I can remember.” Not to be outdone, the voice on my right shoulder, (let’s just say he’s named Huginn) cackled, “I really think you should do this.”

So sleeves up, I am committed to this month of daily challenges! Here goes…

2015 October Platform Challenge: Day 21 – Research Markets



The instructions for today are: “Research Markets”

  • Magazines & Online Publications? Maybe… Not wild about my chances
  • Book Publisher? Ha! I work for one… Which has made me exceedingly cynical regarding the way they treat authors.
  • Literary Agent? Even more cynical.
  • Contests? I’ve spent a lot of time and money on contests in just the past 2 years and nothing to show for it. I’m done with those scams as well.

Not a good challenge item for me today. It’s way too “indenture yourself to a traditional overlord who will abuse you” for my liking.

Hopefully tomorrow will be more relevant.
