Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Edited to add: the proper term is First North American Serial Rights and not North American First Publication Right. I recently answered a question about my writing habits. For them who don’t do Facebook, here’s an explanation of my short story writing … Continue reading
I have a notion of writing a novel for NaNoWriMo 2018 . . . but that means I should get well ahead of my Project 313 obligations. Mind you, I’m unsure I want to commit to meeting the 50K words … Continue reading

I received another rejection, this one for the story titled “Lucy” (formerly, “The Shirt”) but this time I also received a nice feedback paragraph along with the rejection. Before I show the feedback, those who are not familiar with the … Continue reading
That’s how long I waited for a rejection to a story I submitted on December 19, 2015. I waited that long because — on the off chance it was accepted — it would have a lot of exposure. That brings … Continue reading

Yup! Still going. I’m still planning on ten total stories before the end of this month. I might not make it, but not for lack of trying. Today I worked five hours in the yard, went to get my flu shot, … Continue reading
Nope; haven’t given up yet, even if I’m still running behind. I’m still planning on ten total stories before the end of this month. I might not make it, but not for lack of trying. Today I managed to bang … Continue reading
As previously mentioned, I’m planning to write ten short stories this month, all of them for eventual submission somewhere. That necessitates their appearance only in password-protected posts, thereby preserving my publication rights. I’m slightly behind schedule, but I’m ready with … Continue reading
