A quick update on the writing front. No WIP...but I'm thinkin' about it! (remember, it's the thought that counts--I'm going to use that one on my mother this Sunday for Mother's Day).
My flash horror story 'Unbidden' is up at Laurita Miller's blog Brain Droppings as an honourable mention in her recent Seaside Fiction contest. You can also catch the stories of Barry Northern, Jodi MacArthur, Linda Simoni-Wastila and Lou Freshwater. Congratulations again to winner Lily Mulholland and runners-up Michael Solender and Cathy Oliffe.
Just in case some of you may not have noticed...my tribute/roasting of Anton Gully was posted a couple of days ago. The assembling of the story was a bit involved, so I saved it as a draft and continued the next day. What I didn't know is that when you post something like that it has the date of when you initially saved the post. When the post hit the blogosphere it was already labeled 'one day old' and may have gotten past some of you. Apologies on that. You can just scroll on back to the story or link to it here.
I think that I am safe from physical retribution meted out by his thugs, Patrick Fitzgerald and Gerald Fitzpatrick, as the giant ash cloud from Iceland is grounding flights out of Ireland.
Many thanks to those of you (you know who you are) who used the 'evil Twitter' technology to get the message out to the #Fridayflash people who are familiar with Mr. Gully.
