I gave Medium a try, a sort of pay to play site, where you subscribe to their content, but the writers, should they get enough “reads” and “claps,” can be paid. It does seem to have some potential, but a lot of investment in terms of building a readership of folks willing to subscribe, and I’m not sure that’s where I want to be with writing. That said, I moved my story, Jack, off the site and submitted it elsewhere. It was picked up by Spillwords, and will go online February 10. I’ll post the link when it is active.
My story Whispers was originally published on a fun little site called Postcard Shorts, but after nearly a decade of providing a home for tiny little stories, they decided they’d sent out their last card and stopped buying stamps. The site closed back in October of 2018, so I started shopping for another site to publish Whispers. After a bit of looking around I chose Fewer Than 500, another publication that specializes in flash fiction. They liked the story and it will be going up on Feb 3. I’ll post a link when it is published!
Back to the flash fiction, something I am enjoying. I was fortunate to have a new story go up today on Friday Flash Fiction –
Happy New Year! Spillwords, a publication where I have three stories, and in the process of moving another, interviewed me as part of their “Spotlight on Authors” feature, something they do a couple of times a month. Weird questions, but I think that’s the nature of the beast when it comes to interviews. The post will go up February 2nd.
My newest story, Jamaican Sands, will be going up on Spillwords this coming Wednesday, December 26th (a late Christmas present for me;-)) This link will take you there starting that morning –
Trying out a new site., but it’s a fumble so far. My story Jack is up on Medium, but I’m still trying to figure out how the site works.
More to follow when and if that happens 😉
Back to the shorties – my flash, Face of Terror, went up today-
Friday Flash Fiction is holding a Christmas story contest in which the stories must be no more than 100 words (preferably right at 100) and should, but it’s not required, have a seasonal theme, whatever holiday you celebrate. My story, The Nudge, went up today (12/3). Have a peek!
My story, Doug’s Place, went up today, 12/4, on Spillwords. It’s the Featured Story! Here’s the link: Doug’s Place
Thanks for joining me!
