Busy Day, Happy Day

When I first started writing, I wrote a story, sent it out, and camped by the mailbox while I waited to hear back. Now, I send a story out, record where and when I sent it, and work on more stories. One of the consequences is the occasional happy surprise, like the one I got yesterday.

My story, “Short Dark Future” has been accepted into an anthology, TRUST AND TREACHERY: TALES OF POWER, INTRIGUE, AND VIOLENCE. Doin’ the Asseptinss Dance!

I’m also posting today at Fatal Foodies on a product that works as it claims to work, and at The Write Type on 5 best Pinterest practices for writers — or anyone.

WRITING PROMPT: A character has an unexpectedly busy and successful day. Is he or she happy, or is he or she waiting to get hit in the back of the head with a metaphorical brick to counterbalance all the goodness?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
