Short story bits

My flash story "Realer Than Real" is up at AlienSkin. I'd almost forgotten about that one, so it was a nice surprise to notice it.

Someone reported an acceptance to the Dead Bait anthology on Duotrope, so maybe those of us who received hold notices will hear soon. I hope they want my story, since it's not going to be easy to place a story about undead sharks anywhere else.

Thaumatrope
is open for submissions again. They're a Twitter magazine, and I really enjoy reading the tiny stories they post every day. In addition to the individual stories, every month or so they run a serialized story, which is extra cool. I've been wasting time this evening writing a serialized story to submit. It's a lot harder than I expected.

And...I spent four hours this morning helping Mom put together her new gazebo tent thingy out back. While we worked, we discussed the awful time-travel story I have to rewrite, and she helped me work out a completely new plot. I still don't want to write it, but at least it won't suck like the current version does.

Well...Darren got what he deserved, didn't he? Lovely story!

Here's to home chores and rewrites! Huzzah!

Twitter stories are fun. I have one coming up on Thaumotrope later this month and another one next month (I think)

Aaron--thanks! I didn't get as much done today as I wanted, but at least the gazebo is assembled.

Jamie--Cool, you'll have to post when they're up so I know they're yours. I've got one coming up in June, I think.

I've known people like Darren. I nearly applauded at his fate. Well done.

Jameson--Thanks!

Forgot to say that I am performing the ritualistic dance of hope in regards to your (and mine) Dead Bait story.

Jameson--I'd better join you in that dance!

Cate--Thanks!
