Although EC is getting tons of page views thanks to the excellent work of the authors in the "Steadfast Tin Soldiers," there are fewer submissions than usual.
Maybe people are tired of writing about old fairy tales. There are still a lot of submissions, and the competition is still stiff, but as with the Steadfast issue, there not as many as at the same time last year. Or maybe I'm just over thinking this because I have lots of work to do. And I will do anything to avoid paid writing work. Crazy, I know!
There is enough time to whip up a story or poem. Read the story and let your imagination fly. And "Mother Holle"-inspired works are also welcome.
