Things have been a little different on the non-writing end of things recently, so writing has had to shift around a bit to accommodate. Friday mornings and Saturday afternoons at the coffee shop have been more hectic, so I decided to move the weekly installments of “Twicebound”.
Along with that, the Scriptorium has moved and rebooted, so I’ve been working on shifting our old stories onto the new website and making sure everything works (and looks) right. It’s not as easy as it could be, since WordPress.com isn’t exactly designed for customization. Putting up a blog post requires more code than it ought to, but we chose to go with hard work instead of paying 100$ for hosting just so we could change the background color behind the text.
I did something new with the most recent short story I’m working on and took a cue from Claire Banschbach’s idea to write a short story when she gets a certain number of reviews for her books. (hope that’s okay with you, Claire!) Anyone who writes a review of my short story “Pyramid 76” on Barnes & Nobles or Smashwords will get 1st draft access to my new science fiction short story “Copper Castaway”, annotated with my draft notes and thoughts on the story. If you’re interested, head on over to one store or the other, download “Pyramid 76”, review it, and then email me a link to the review from my contact page. Don’t forget to include your email address, so I can send you the story!
