Shout Outs and Linkages

Hey all. I’m back in the land of the vertical, with occasional wooziness. And my hair is superbly red (translation: made salon appointment today).

Another VPXIIIer gets a professional credit. Ferret gets himself a gig at Asimov’s for his short story “Under the Thumb of the Brain Patrol.” That’s the fourth one. Go, VP XIII!

While I’m trying to catch up at work, here are some people who have excellent things to say about writing.

Also from Ferrett, a rantification about how he’s improving his writing.

From Jay Lake, The Larval Stages of the Common American Speculative Fiction Writer, which is so true it pains me to read it, because I’ve been through all of those stages.

And finally, Jon Gibbs post Is Your But Too Big? ends up at Nathan Bransford’s blog today.

So, now we try to write a little.

  1. Yeah, our class is showing a lot of sales. It’s making me really antsy for late Feb/early March when I finally hear back from a pair of short stories I sent out.

    The only problem with patience is that it takes too long:)
