An unusual amount of freezing rain here in Southwestern Ontario so far in 2019. Good for writing, though. When the roads are too treacherous to venture outdoors, it gives you a good excuse to take a seat in front of the laptop for awhile.
A short story entitled "Breakaway" appeared in Issue #1 of Nomadic Delirium's Mundanities in early February. You can find information about the issue here:
"It Is Said" (fantasy poem) and a review of Edward Willett's poetry book, I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust appeared in Star*Line Issue 42.1 (Winter 2019)
A poem entitled "Long Gone" is scheduled to appear in Issue 133 of Space and Time, due out around March 20, 2019.
What I'm Working On
Until March 15th, I'll still be collecting speculative poetry submissions for Eye to the Telescope Issue 32: Sports and Games, which I am guest editing. Lots of good submissions so far, and looking forward to seeing the final edition go online in April 2019.
I have more ideas for short stories than I can keep up with, so working on bringing some of those ideas to fruition (ah, the tricky part). Based on some of my more recent experiences, I'm going back to trying more up-front thinking before getting started on the meat of the story. This seems to help me provide the appropriate amount of detail, as opposed to just glossing things over. It also tends to reduce the number of dead ends I encounter.
Also catching up on my book review commitments. Some volumes were delayed in the mail, but they're starting to catch up with me—which is a good thing, right?
And poetry ideas continue to suggest themselves, sometimes sparked by news items, sometimes initiated by poetry exercises from books like Wingbeats II or The Crafty Poet.
So, keeping busy, even though it may not look like it from the publication report for February.
On to March. Looking forward to seeing the robins . . .
