Hey all–hope you’re all doing well.

For your consideration, then, these are they: Fiction Three stories … More 2020 Roundup and Awards Post
I’ve been a bit lax in keeping this page up to date, but here we go: My poem, “Upon the Climbing of a Topless Tower,” appeared in Silver Blade in August. It’s a villanelle (so, 19 lines)–but don’t think poorly of it, please. My poem, “That is not what I meant at all,” is part … More Poetry news!

I haven’t done a “the year in writing” post in previous years, mostly, because those years have mostly been the same: “wrote a fair number of words, and not much else happened.” I was either not writing enough, or not submitting enough. Despite my participation in NaNoWriMo approaching legal US driving age, my word counts … More 2018 Writing Progress Bar
