I’ve written some new things. A subset of these will appear in Matchbook, PANK, Writers’ Bloc, Four and Twenty, A Handful of Stones, Outshine, and elimae. I now have a bunch of half-started things that I would like to finish but probably won’t. I have however ruled out urology and nephrology as future specialties.
Matchbook, PANK, and Writers’ Bloc won’t happen until 2010, which is probably a good thing as now I can already consider 2010 a creatively productive year. Matchbook in particular has a really unique take on publishing where they place stories side-by-side with critical pieces. A few sites (PANK among them) interview writers about their stories, but I can’t think of anyone who puts the nonfiction thoughts of their contributors in the forefront like Matchbook. It’s refreshing and exciting.
I also really wanted elimae, and it took me a while to land. Few places accept submissions of literally any size and fewer still consistently publish nano/hint length pieces. elimae has been in the super-short game longer than anyone.
In other news, my vision of the future appeared in Thaumatrope a few days back.
