Today I mail off two flash fiction subs for Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader (Flush Fiction- hardy har har!).
I wrote two pieces for this, each under a thousand words. Both were good fun. One is a vignette from my space-western ‘verse, another is two alien kids documenting everything they found on a human female.
Snail mail subs only are silly; I suppose if someone prefers to only review material in a printed-on-paper format, they need to be sent a physical copy, but I think this is an unfortunate holdover from the age of print. I much prefer e-subs, for the ease of sending and communicating, and as the more ecologically friendly choice (not just printing on paper- also mailing stuff around the continent expands my carbon footprint, which I’m trying to keep to a minimum!).
We had a poker night last night. Nice night with nice friends. Made delicious pasta and Szechuan green beans (found a good recipe on youtube here: Show Me The Curry!).
Echo was her usual bitey, scratchy self.
