March 1st

Where oh where is this year rocketing off to? March 1st? Already?

OK, lamenting aside, I have a new story going up on Spillwords March 14th. A Fresh Cuppa Joe is a little longer than a flash and a little different, but I enjoyed it. I have another flash up for consideration at Friday Flash Fiction, Prepared, and a short story, Absolution Trail, in at a couple of sites hoping to get a bite. I’ll post links when they become available.

Update – Prepared just went up on Friday Flash Fiction – Prepared


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!
