“Writers are the lunatic fringe of publishing.”
~ Judith Rossner
During the next month or so, I’ll have five new stories in print online. Two of these stories — “No Milk Would Come,” appearing in Scintilla Magazine, and “It Was the Only Way,” appearing in SOL: English Writing in Mexico — are part of a trilogy of connected stories. (The third story is still making its way around the market.) Keep an eye out for the announcements that these stories are online, and kudos to people who read both and pick up on the connection!
The other three are unconnected, but they’ll all appear in the upcoming issue of Unshod Quills, which calls for submissions according to theme. These are tricky but exciting, because the themes are essentially writing prompts (I’ve posted about them before in the Writer’s Notebook), and I always love seeing where other writers take themes I also chose to write on. My three stories will present my takes on the “David Lynch,” “Razor Dance,” and “Secret Life” themes. Keep an eye out for news that they’re online, too, and then have fun comparing my interpretations to the work of other writers, artists, poets, and so on!
