What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blogfest to share the answers to a few simple questions… Join us!
Still stories from the January 2014 edition of ‘Analog’ magazine on my Kindle, and “The Ringworld Engineers” on Audible via my smartphone. The local library copy of “Discworld: Moving Pictures” is showing up as ‘In Transit’ so hopefully I’ll be able to start reading that soon.
What I’m writing:
I wrote a short story for the SDMB Short Fiction contest over the weekend, ‘Underworld’, an updated twist on the Orpheus legend where the main character makes a video recording of his friend’s trip down into the realm of Hades. Also, I just finished my last round of revisions on “Love is a Masterpiece”, and I think I’m going to try sending it off to Writers of the Future.
What inspires me right now:
My Odyssey friends, the Race, and all the cool stuff I can do with my Android tablet.
What else I’ve been up to:
Went to the TGIO party for Hamilton NaNoWriMo on Sunday evening, and that was really cool and a lot of fun, but also sad, in that Nano season is really over–at least until the prep for Camp NaNo starts in the spring.
Also took care of some routine maintenance on the car, starting new critiques for Team Ambitious, and walking through the bitter cold. 😉

They do a JunoWrimo if you’re interested, it’s run by different people, but still a great way to stay motivated during the summer. I need to write more short stories, I hear they’re great to work your creative muscles!
Your short story sounds so fun.
I hope you have a good week.
Writing a short story is a really special talent. Yours sounds really interesting ^_^
Have a lovely week!
I’ve never actually written a short story before, but I’m impressed by people who can. When you’ve got a bad case of word vomit like I do, it makes it hard to reign in the word count like that. (Also one of the reasons I don’t write flash fiction either.) Your short story’s premise sounds really interesting! Have a great week, Chris. 🙂
That’s a very cool concept for a short story! Congrats on finishing the final round of revisions on your other writing project! Sounds like you’ve been busy!
