Yes, it's time for the most important meal of the day: the incredibly late morning brunch. Today's entree is, as a matter of principle, located at Shooting Suburbia, and it's called "The Spirit Takes Flight And Touches The Canopy Of Life", part fo'.
For the appetizer, we have, to borrow a catch phrase from Sandra Seaman, a Snoopy Dance.
For the first time in almost a year and a half, yours truly got another story published.
Early this year, I decided to start exploring the short story market for the few shorts that I'd written last year and polished to an ultra shine. In order to do that, I needed to start paying attention to the weekly e-mails that Duotrope were depositing in my inbox. So after doing a brief search and destroy, I found a quirky magazine that seemed like a good fit for one of my stories called "Red Stripe" (plot: the last day in the life of a punk rock singer called Krystal Methadone), The Cynic Online Magazine.
In early March, I fired off an e-mail with my 4K word short story. Two months later and almost giving up any hope of having my story accepted, I perfromed one of my once a day check of my Hotmail addy, and lo and behold, I found an acceptance e-mail and brief contract attached to that e-mail.
My story "Red Stripe" will be published in the June issue of Cynic Magazine. Shortly thereafter, I will post a permanent link in my Published Writings page.
