New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #5

I am finished. My run at Our Band Could Be Your Lit is, today, officially over. My last story is online now. I had a blast doing it, and many thanks to Ryan Werner for making me sound cooler than I am (with only one exception, all those titles were his, and like any good editor, heContinue reading “New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #5”

A Writer’s Notebook: Packing my bags at OBCBYL

And just like that, my tenure at Our Band Could Be Your Lit is coming to an end: this week, I’m writing my last story for this project. And it couldn’t come at a better time, because Ryan Werner has decided to start throwing simply idiotic songs at me. Seriously — his words: “For your lastContinue reading “A Writer’s Notebook: Packing my bags at OBCBYL”

New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #4

I really dragged my feet finishing this week’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit story, but I explained why over at the OBCBYL site. Of course, the story itself is about the difficulties of writing — and how obnoxious writers can be — so maybe that’s explanation enough. This is the penultimate story, folks, so checkContinue reading “New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #4”

A Writer’s Notebook: Picking out the drapes at OBCBYL

So I’m winding up my run at Our Band Could Be Your Lit. I’m actually not sure if Ryan will be taking back the reins next week or the week after, so I might still be at this for another story or two. But I know I’m nearing the end. I’m sure Ryan Werner willContinue reading “A Writer’s Notebook: Picking out the drapes at OBCBYL”

New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #3

This week’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit story is about a dummy. Take that any way you want to. Also, Dentonites and especially my old pals from UNT: Remember Slobberbone? Yeah, they’re cool. I hope my story did them justice. You can check it out here. Related articles A Writer’s Notebook: Becoming a couch potato at OBCBYLContinue reading “New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #3”

A Writer’s Notebook: Becoming a couch potato at OBCBYL

Actually, I’m that guy who drops by just to say hi, sticks around for a beer, points at the tv and says, “Oh, is this game on?” before flopping onto the couch, and then, some time around 11:30 at night when you’re yawning and changing into pyjamas and doing everything else you can think ofContinue reading “A Writer’s Notebook: Becoming a couch potato at OBCBYL”

New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #2

I dragged this week’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit story out to the last minute again, but that Cast Spells song was tricky. I think it turned out to be fairly cool, though. You can check it out here. Related articles A Writer’s Notebook: Still sittin’ in at OBCBYL (snoekbrown.wordpress.com)

A Writer’s Notebook: Still sittin’ in at OBCBYL

This week I’m writing another story for Ryan Werner’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit project. It’s supposed to be up on Sunday, but I got the text in at the last minute last week so it took a couple of days to appear online. I’m hoping to be a bit ahead of the gameContinue reading “A Writer’s Notebook: Still sittin’ in at OBCBYL”

New fiction: the OBCBYL project, story #1

So, as I mentioned in the last Writer’s Notebook, for the next month I’m sitting in at Ryan Werner’s music-to-fiction blog project, Our Band Could Be Your Lit. Today, the first of the new stories posted. Check it out. Related articles A Writer’s Notebook: Sittin’ In at OBCBYL (snoekbrown.wordpress.com)

A Writer’s Notebook: Sittin’ In at OBCBYL

As I did last October, I’m writing a story for Ryan Werner’s Our Band Could Be Your Lit project. This won’t be just this week, though. Ryan is busy compiling a story-collection manuscript (which I fully expect he’ll get published, though if his book appears in print before any of mine do, I might haveContinue reading “A Writer’s Notebook: Sittin’ In at OBCBYL”
