Haven't felt like I've been super-creative the past couple of days, but I've made some good headway on the business side of writing. There's the trailer for Solitude, of course. And I have submitted, "When You Wish Upon a God," to American Short Fiction," and have prepped "Vengeance and the Offending Page" for Ellery Queen's. I think the former has a pretty good shot, thanks in large part to a few key comments from readers (Thanks, B Nagel -- Thanks, Robert Marclar). I know the latter is a little edgier than most of what EQMM runs, but I sent to their Department of First Stories, so we shall see.
Which brings me to the other thing I've gotten accomplished. Thanks to the collaborative teaching of Casey and Heather, I have gotten a Ning group started for those who want to read and comment or critique on my stories, even if only occasionally. If you have any interest, drop me a comment or send me an e-mail at c.n.nevets(at)gmail.com. It's a private group for obvious reasons so I'll need to invite you.
I definitely appreciate quality readers. The areas I tend to appreciate help in the most are (a) consistency of tone and voice, (b) writing of action sequences, as opposed to dialoge or internals, and (c) catching those last little proof-ready things that my mind skipped over. If you're interested, just let me know! I will also be posting teasers for stories as I submit then, just to get you interested.
Well, I feel like I need to be creative for a while, that's it for tonight. Oh, wait, I did manage to write a pretty gross Flashy Fiction today.
