Tales tell themselves. We’re just conduits for the telling.

Hey there…

Back again with another recap of my week’s writing — actually publishing. There are stories written that haven’t been published (yet), and stories that haven’t been finished (and some that don’t want to be finished)

Big News

Other than having stories published, I have other big news this week.

Firstly, I have joined the editorial team of Zane Dickens and Mark Farrar on the fantastic microfiction/flash fiction journal Microcosm.

As well, I have been named a Medium Top Writer for #microfiction, #speculative-fiction, and #centina. As Top Writers come and go, hopefully, I will still be one next week.

Writing Prompts

One of my favorite ways to write is to take the weekly prompt from a publication (like Centina Pentina, Microcosm, and The Bad Influence) and make them my own.

A mage of the pen, whose magic springs from the telling of tales. An iconoclast who promotes all fiction, but whose love is Transgressive Fiction.
