first and last

Well now, I guess there's a first time for everything.

Editor KV Taylor from The Red Penny Papers was kind enough to conduct a virtual mini-interview with yours truly last week, and it went online today. You can read it here, should you be so inclined. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: working with Ms. Taylor was one of the best writer/editor experiences I've had as of yet, and I wish her well with her endeavors. RPP is something special, and if you haven't submitted your work to them yet, you'd best be gettin' about it posthaste!

Meanwhile, over at Fried Fiction, the last of my "Doppelgänger" serial has been posted, and you can read the entire tale here from start to finish all 6 riveting episodes. Every good thing must come to an end, and while this probably wasn't the greatest serialized thriller of all time, I had fun with it; and that's what  it's still all about for me. I don't plan on that changing anytime soon.

For Write1Sub1 this week, I've got three stories in the works (as you can see on the sidebar there). Which one will I end up submitting? I'm thinking it'll be "Dahlia's", but you never know. In a cage match situation like this, all bets are off.

Lastly, have I mentioned my current obsession? It would be HAIKU. I think I'm seriously addicted or something. I can't stop writing them. I'm even beginning to think in haiku and plot stories in haiku. Case in point:

ruffling feathers
our hero glances upward
vulture silhouettes

Adding fuel to the fire, Blackdahlia recently accepted all eight of my submissions for their April issue, which of course has incited me to write many more. Isn't it amazing what a little encouragement can do?
