My Fatherhood drabble has been published at SHINE. You can check it out here –> Fatherhood . 🙂
I’m very pleased with this drabble, it’s been published at two places so far and I think it’s pretty well done. It confuses me, however, that flash stories I’ve done since then that I think are superior to it keep getting rejected LOL Perhaps it’s the subject matter — things being left unsaid is something everyone can relate to, but maybe not everyone ‘gets’ stupid gangsters or visits from beyond the grave.
Food for thought I suppose, but I’d be lying if I said it would be likely to affect what I wrote in the future 🙂
Some of my poetry was accepted for the seventh issue of Twenty3 Magazine, however it’s a bit complicated. The magazine is restructuring* so I’m not exactly sure when my work will be published, or in what format. I’m not even sure which poem I submitted was accepted (I submitted three) but it’s exciting nonetheless. I’ll be sure and update as I discover more details 🙂
*I know a few details, but I’m not sure it’s my place to reveal them just yet 😉
Yay! I just got another acceptance. My Fatherhood drabble has been accepted at SHINE for the February issue 🙂 I’ll link directly to it as soon as it goes live.
My flash story, A Merry Christmas, has been published at Flash Flooding — yay. You can read the story by following that link, and if you do, please rate it — but do it honestly, I don’t want any gratuitous 5s.
Aside from that and the usual process of writing and submitting nothing else is new that’s related to my writing. I continue to work on the Haven novel-in-stories and I’m editing the ‘On a Mission’ novella to take out about 3 chapters and make it a tighter read. Exciting, no? 😉
My drabble ‘Fatherhood’ was published at A Long Story Short on the 7th. If you want to read it all you need to do is follow the link below — it’s all there, complete with my ‘Evil prevails’ email signature LOL I wrote ‘Fatherhood’ in response to a challenge on NaNoLJers for father’s day, and, as I’m sure you can imagine, I had my stepfather, Clark, in mind when I did.
