Other than trying to work and all that, I recently had a short, flash fiction piece accepted in the Fall 2012 issue of From the Depths from Haunted Waters Press. That is exciting and I’ll let you know when it is published. It was from a contest I entered and it is a mere 13 words long.
I am also working on a short story that I wrote recently. It needs cleaning up, a few eyes other than my own and all that but I do like it. It is called Weight Watcher and look for it to come out soon.
I have a rough draft of my new story but I think I’ll let a couple of people read it before I do anything with it. What I’d love to do is submit it to some kind of anthology. That’s my dream – to be in something like Hot Blood or some kind of horror anthology. I can’t say what kind of anthology or I’d give away the ending. Anyway, if one of you wants to read the rough draft just let me know and keep in mind, it’s not done. However, at least you’ll have the general idea and can give me some constructive criticism. Right now, the name is The Bunker.
Have you ever read a story and thought about how you wish you’d thought of it yourself? I just read one in the book The Gate 2: 13 Tales of Isolation and Despair. The story was from Daniel Pyle and and it’s called Night Night. The ending blew me away and since I love twist endings, I wish I’d written it myself. There are also a couple of stories in there by my pals, David McAfee and David Dalglish. So I guess I’m pimping out this awesome book of short stories. Well, at least so far it’s awesome.
My point is that sometimes you think of neat things and want to write about it but there are times you read something spectacular by someone else and wish you’d written it yourself. That’s how I feel about this book. Great job Daniel and I can’t wait to read the stories by the two Davids.
