Sale!

I found out today that Every Day Fiction will be publishing "Ripples," my alternate history flash fiction, next month. This is very exciting for me because (a) it's my second sale ever, which means the first was not a fluke, and (b) I visit Every Day Fiction several times a week and am excited that my story will be among the offerings there in March. Also, this is the first time I have made a sale at the first market to which I submitted the story.

More details to come as I get them.

Flash Fiction Chronicles

My second post is up today at Flash Fiction Chronicles. Here's a taste:

"It has happened to many of us at one time or another: The words are flowing, the story is unfolding on the page and then … the words just stop.

"You stare at the screen (or notebook, if you work in longhand) and realize that you don’t know how to write the next sentence. Or the one after that. So you take a break, get a glass of water, run some errands, maybe even sleep on it.

Then you come back to the story. Still nothing. You're blocked."

Make sure you check it out, and the other fantastic posts there.
