Taking time to think

My blog posts during the week have been thin of late. I've been busy, yo.

A story of mine was selected for the Inhuman flash fiction contest at Absolute X-Press. The story will be in the anthology, to be published next month.

Sadly, I did not win the Bristol Prize for short fiction (or if I did, they didn't notify me).

My submission rate has been substandard of late. That's something I hope to be able to address in the coming weeks.

I'm also going to have to resist the urge to knock out a YA best-seller. I just don't have the time for it.

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. I feel your pain, Tony... It's hard to crank stuff out but we do what we can. Thank god we have the blogs... I, too, should be submitting more. I'm always impressed by the scribes who can do it. I don't have the energy ... Keep up the good work, nonetheless.

  2. Thanks! Sometimes it feels like I'm juggling while going over a waterfall. When things go right, I need to celebrate them.

  3. Juggling over a waterfall - I hear ya.
    Congrats on the story being accepted!

  4. Congrats on the Absolute X-Press selection. Nice.
