Curbside Splendor, "Last Call"

This is the second piece that Curbside Splendor has accepted. "Last Call" is a subtle story where I'm aiming for the reader to focus on two key phrases: "You can't do nothing" and "Certain things couldn’t wait." What does Frank do and why does he wait? Do you want to get angry at Frank, but somehow can't? Hmmmm, you never know how the life you led reflects in death. Don't waste life's time.

Finished! Sort of, not at all.

No new news lately as I've not been submitting and have been putting all my time and energy into finishing draft one of my novel,

An Angry Therapist's Thursday Appointments
. (Name subject to change but I like it).

In reality it's not close to being finished, although a version called the first draft certainly is. There is revisions and editing to do, which is boring to speak of and no one is really interested in hearing about. That will be followed by the hunt for an agent, which will lead to more boring to talk about revisions and editing. Next is the hunt for a publisher, which will lead to etc., etc., get the picture.

I will talk more about the book at some point and post the synopsis when it's time to do that. After that, people shouldn't be bored or not want to hear about that or else I've not done a very good job.

Seasonal Affective Disorder, previously in print is anthologized on the web.

Aleathia Drehmer, creator of Durable Goods (a print micro-zine that is sent all over the United States and several places internationally as well.)  and Brian Fugett (Zygote in my Coffee) have teamed up to put the complete first year of Durable Goods on-line. Enjoy the many great poets that have graced their tiny pages.

My poem, Seasonal Affective Disorder appears HERE.
