Way, way behind on so many things.
There are reasons, most of them academic. I’ve deliberately set myself a harder than necessary second year so that third year will be a little easier than the normal brutality in my program and cascading adjustments will let fourth year be a Thesis focus picking up the remaining requirements.
But that means a lot of other stuff is behind.
Writing in general, and as relates to the blog, I don’t recall the last time I posted, but I could certainly look it up and be disappointed with how long it’s been.
So, to dip my toe back into blogging, an announcement!
My flash piece, “Boom-daze” appeared on episode 737 of the Manawaker Studios Flash Fiction podcast. Set sometime in the 1980s, a teenager uses most of his savings to buy his first portable stereo, what we used to call a Boom Box, and then nearly loses it.
This is the first non-SF, non-F story I’ve placed anywhere, and I’m rather proud of it. Comments I’ve gotten are very positive. And the narration is great. Here’s the link. Give it a listen, and let me know what you think.
Be well, everyone.
