david bowie black tie - sosostris2012

tomorrow morning you wake up with the white noise

Woke up to good news this morning: Jonathan Laden at Fictitious Force is buying the stillsostrange brainspore short short short, "Matte." Which is not about brainspores, but I caught it from her brainspores. So that's different.

It's only the second successful piece of flash I've ever written, so selling it makes me happy.

Also, the ToC for Subterranean 6 is up. And wow that looks good.

And of course the current issue (#5) is shipping, complete with Sebastien on the cover, as concieved by Tim Truman, one of my all time favorite four-color artists.

Did I mention it has a dirigible

I guess I should breakfast and get my workout clothes on so I can write for a while before I go to the gym....

My life currently is an endless cycle of exercise, write, eat, sleep, answer email, play guitar, put your pants on. Not necessarily in that order. With occasional breaks for social activity and long trips on airplanes.

God, I need to do laundry, too, so I can pack. My flight's Wednesday morning.

...and maybe go buy a pair of black jeans, since mine have gone AWOL somewhere.

I'm living for giving the devil his due.

oldcharliebrown, aka Sean Wallace of Fantasy Magazine, just posted:

This issue represents about forty thousand words, with ten stories, with all contributions nearly by women, the exception being Richard Parks. This represents a one percent representation. Subsequent issues pretty much follow that trend, until Issue Eight. No further comment.

Looks to me like it's time for another slushbomb. Male SFF writers of the world, are you ready to send your best and brightest to Fantasy Magazine and correct that gender disparity?

Sadie Hawkins Day is November 13th. Is that enough time for y'all, or should we push it back to after the holidays?
