A quick combined wrap up for February and March:
I sold a short piece of flash fiction to Utopia Science Fiction Magazine: a quiet, feel-good story about androids. It’s called “Lovely Lilas” and it should come out shortly in their April issue. If you happen to receive their email newsletter, you might have even read it already!
Andromeda Spaceways Magazine was also kind enough to interview me as part of their Authors Unearthed series. It was a really fun interview to be a part of, and I believe it’s due to come out in their next issue – thank you for having me, Andomeda Spaceways!
I posted three new YouTube videos:
– 16 hard sells to pro science-fiction and fantasy short story publishers
– Everything I look for in short fiction contracts
– Awful Writing Advice: “Write every day” + “Quantity over quality”
All of my videos are captioned, as always. I’ve filmed all of the more straightforward educational videos I wanted to make at this point, so it’s going to be interesting branching out a bit more! I’ve got a long list of video ideas, don’t worry – but if there’s anything in particular you’d especially like to see me do a video about, please let me know.
Writing-wise, it hasn’t been a particularly productive couple of months for me, as the rest of my life has been pretty full on. There’s been some major surgery and recovery (not mine!), an exciting new job offer (mine!) and the subsequent transition period at work. Crossing my fingers that I can get some solid writing done this Easter weekend.
