Six months? Seven? Someone recently told me that the days are long but the years are short so figure out what you like and hold on. Well, what I can tell you is that I like writing. Telling stories. Being creative. So that's what I've been focusing on and it's what'll serve as a partial excuse for my extended absence from social media and the web. It's been beneficial if I'm being honest. Not only have I read more this year, I've written far more than I have in a long time. But, the proof is in the publications, right?
Following that with a question - what's your definition of a power couple? Say... the maiden of spring and death himself? Well, that's at least where my brain went with it. 'When Death Met the May Queen', featured in Funemployment's Summer Issue, is a speculative short story on the brutal aftermath of when want and responsibility collide. And it's a love story. Because come on, all the best ones are. This one was special.
And, because who doesn't love a good haunted house story (if you currently live in New England and are not, in fact, intrigued by haunted houses... well, you are free to leave. Joking of course (maybe) especially seeing as the haunted house in 'Gardens for the Dead' my short story that was just accepted in Sley House Publishing's forthcoming Tales of Sley House 2022 is actually in upstate New York. But, I mean really, New England should just annex New York and be done with it.
Alright, that's enough rambling and enough time spent online. Words and stories beckon. Be well friends.
