One os my short stories, Priorities, is going out to various magazines (one at a time mind you, since alot of magazines dont do simultaneous submissions. They are usually pretty quick about getting back to you though). If you like storys about horrible hosptials and redemption with a zest of overpopulation, I suggest you check it out if it gets picked up.
Copper Bracelet is one of my longer short stories (11,000 words) and is soon to be looked at by my editor (my wife). Its takens a while (3 years) to write, but Copper Bracelet was the first real story I have worked on, save for one somewhat futury childrens story that did. With that story, I'm trying to make a spec-fic piece (involving something like superpowers) as literary as possible, without gettign wierd and pretentious. I'm reading David Sedaris' Children Playing before a Statue of Hercules for the literay parts.
That futury children's story, Dome of Flowers, might be getting a revision soon, and I'll try to send it out again.
Finally, I would like to mention that I may publish some of my really short works here on the blog, just becuase I can guaruntee the exposure, how ever large or small it may be at the time.
I will keep you all posted both here on my blog and on my Facebook Page about how I'm doing as a writer.
