Meanwhile, I’m putting together an essay on Magical Realism using some stories by fellow Fictionaut writers. It’s been one of my favorite genres to read and with all the writing of flash fiction the past couple of months, I’ve dipped my own pen into the inkwell to practice this whole new world of story.
A few of the stories out of this effort have been selected for publication, and one just came out today at the Blue Print Review, Issue #25. My story is called “Descriptions” and it was one of my favorites that Dorothy Lang happened to read and snap up. I’m excited that one of the Pittsburgh images is up on the Author’s Notes page, and another will be included with one of the other stories by many talented writers in this issue.
Also focusing on going back over my years of postings and presentations on hypertext in Storyspace and Tinderbox to help clarify a writer’s position on using this fabulous form.
It’s been a busy, productive summer this year and it’ll likely be a busier fall.
