On a Roll

Hello everyone,

Thanks for the outpouring and positive response I have had about my medical issues of late. My back is mending as I write and with many tests, doctors input, drug choices and gut instincts, I am positive that no matter what, I will heal, and that this might be a lot worse.

I have had so much fun with writing lately that I have hardly had time to notice much else: family visiting from another country or a bat suddenly showing up in my writing studio, just to mention a few incidentals.

Here are the links to journals that are currently publishing my work:

Tryst Magazine: http://www.tryst3.com/

50 to 1: http://50-to-1.blogspot.com

I also found out that Girls with Insurance will publish Mid-Life Revelation in June. Clutching at Straws took Part of Life: Two Ways. In August, Heavy Bear will publish two of my poems: Train Ride from New York City and Liberty Park.

I am also now an editor at jmww magazine, a nicely established, well respected online magazine that publishes a best of anthology every year. Thanks, Jen! So, writers, submit your short stories! Also, Amanda Deo at Thunderclap Press has asked for my editorial assistance with flash fiction for her bi-monthly magazine. My piece, Tardy, was included in her Numero Uno edition, and she took two of my pieces for the Numero Dos (July) issue as well. Thanks, Amanda!

New buddy, writer Meg Pokrass inducted me into the Fictionaut family last week. I have yet to post anything there, but I will. It’s an invite-only forum where you can post prose and get feedback. I’ve been on yet another submission craze lately.

Then, there is the possibility that I might be a non-fiction contributor at The Nervous Breakdown (check it out online!).

And if that isn’t enough, I am reading with a gaggle of great Redbird- Redoak roundtable folks at Cafe Fixx on June 3 at 7:00 p.m. Be there or be square.

Gosh, I barely have enough time to blog!

    So sorry to hear about your back, Robert but I also feel like this is something you will conquer. Hang in there, try not to over-exert yourself. And your writing is soaring, as it ought to be. Hang on for the ride of your life. And thanks for letting us know where we can read it.
