Galen, from the Inkpunks crew, invited me to do a guest post for them. I did a little Sally Fields “You like me! You really like me!!” dance in my head. Little did she know how hard I was banging said head into my desk trying to come up with a worthy post, before she mentioned, “Oh yeah, a bunch of folks are doing posts about workshops.” The big ones. The ones all of us genre writers want to go to–Clarion, Odyssey, Viable Paradise, Uncle Orson’s, &c. The ones that a lot of us can’t take six weeks away from life to attend.

Check out “Autodidactic Asphyxiation” at the Inkpunks blog.
“Combat Stress Reaction” is up today in CG‘s Gadgets & Artifacts issue.

This was a flash fiction piece I wrote, prompted by and workshopped in a private office of the Zoetrope Virtual Studio, not to mention my face-to-face critique group.
Nice to know I’m going 3 for 10 for my latest round of story submissions, eh?
Shouldn’t be surprised that the editor of the ‘zine labeled this one, which had a working title of “Love Potion #10” as Fantasy/Romance. Needless to say, the romance writers in my critique group were overjoyed!
“Good for the Gander”
