Writing Under the Blade

I have a new post up at The Midnight Diner blog entitled "Writing Under the Blade." I like the title so much that I'm using it twice. I discuss how the Write1Sub1 experiment has benefited my writing and productivity. And in a round about way, I equate Write1Sub1 to the grim reaper. If that doesn't pique your interest then nothing will.

An Acceptance

I received a note from the editor at Digital Dragon Magazine informing me that my story "Why the Squonk Weeks" has been accepted for their April edition. This is a short fairy tale and my Write1Sub1 story for February. It's been through several rewrites so I'm overjoyed it has finally found a home. A squonk is a mythical beast of American origin known for being ugly and perpetually weeping. The story also addresses trickery and the vagaries of magic. Sometimes the best laid plans can bite your backside, literally.

Interview at Midnight Diner

Some commentary and an interview with me regarding my story "The Princess and the Vampire" has been posted here on The Midnight Diner blog. Thanks to Eric Ortlund for the commentary and interview.

Sorry for the confusion. The interview is actually up as of today, April 6. It was posted briefly on the first then unposted.
