Writing Update

This month I've submitted three stories to different markets:

  • "The Hanging Boy" to Black Room Manuscripts (accepted). 
  • "Guising" to The Alchemy Book of Horror (reading period isn't over yet).
  • "It Only Hurts on the Way Out" to Black Static (sent today; confirmation of submission received).

I'm hoping this strong start to the year signals a return to some kind of prolificacy for me in terms of writing short fiction. I've been too quiet for too long; it's time to get back into the game.

I'm also working on a novel, "Little red House", which seems like a summation of where I'm at creatively right now. It's a tough one to write. I've changed a lot in the past few years and my writing - at least the way I write -  has changed more than anything. It's been no secret that I've struggled for quite some time now to write with any kind of sustained routine. But at least now, I want to write. That wasn't always the case in recent times.

So, onward and upward. I hope.
