They’re more a cultural joke than anything else: New Year’s Resolutions, those lists of detailed self-improvements we assemble in good faith to help guide our actions in future.
Yes, I’ve been away from the keyboard for a bit since my last post. No excuses, no explanations other than the unavoidable fact that life often intervenes when least expected.
What matters is, I’m back. With a vengeance.
I’m kick off my return to the word by joining up with the National Novel Writing Month challenge, during which I will be converting my short story A Little Hike into a full-length novel.
One of my short fiction pieces, The Other Foot, which I just recently read along with a gathering of other authors at Warren County Community College, has been selected to appear in the latest anthology from Portable Press, Uncle John’s Flush Fiction. As they describe it on their Amazon page:
Prepare to be entertained by this unique collection of short-short stories–all fewer than 1,000 words–handpicked by the master story-teller himself, Uncle John. Whatever genre you’re into–humor, mystery, romance, horror, adventure, sci-fi, or slice-of-life–it’s in here.
