Misses and Hits

A few rejections lately, but one good acceptance today. I’m trying to move away from flash pieces and write longer-form. It’s harder – both to write longer pieces, and to place them. Pages must be turned. Interest must be held.

On the reading front, I finished Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War. I wanted to like it, but some aspects have aged pretty badly. The Future-Where-Everyone’s-Gay in particular is kind of eyerolling.

Also, could not quite finish the first book in Foundation (I know, I know — call yourself a sci fi writer?). I do love the faster-than-light ships that deliver mail.

Next to read: Joy Williams’ The Changeling, which has been recommended lots.

Advice to readers: buckets, eggs, the Sombrero Galaxy, General Sheridan, teeth.
