I have resisted doing this. I really didn't want to do this. But, I'm going to have to take this journal friends-only. Sadly, a lot of contests and publishers consider something "previously published" if it has been posted online publicly. Because I would like to pursue publication for expanded versions of some of the fiction that I've been writing here, as well as some of the poetry, I'm taking the journal friends-only.
What this means for you:
If you have a livejournal and I'm already on your friends-list, it doesn't change much. It just means that you'll have to be signed in to read what I'm writing.
If you don't have a livejournal, and you want to keep reading, you're going to have to sign up for one. The accounts are free and you don’t ever have to post anything in your journal. You just have to create it and add realiotrulio to your friends list. Once you’ve “friended” me, I can friend you back and, if I do, whenever you’re signed in to your livejournal account, you can read my writings. Go here to create a livejournal of your own.
If you have questions:
Comment here with your questions. This post and my prompting posts will remain the only public entries in this journal as of this morning. I will start posting regularly again tomorrow with an author’s note explaining the new rules for May.
So you know, I really didn’t want to do this, but sometimes, I’m not the one making the rules.
