Gone Lumberjacking




gone lumberjacking

as in donning the heavy boots and abrasive flannel and stomping into the woods with a thick blade on a stick.

as in spitting in soon to be blistered hands and felling a tree, drying the wood and cutting it into planks, and designing and assembling a dining table around which to sit, on which to break bread, off of which to gently toss a butter licking cat.

as in the simple act of doing things, not because the outcome will be so much better, not because the project will be so much cheaper, definitely not because it will be a quicker way of getting whatever that thing is done.

as in unearthing.

Between Green and Union On a Day That Is Sunny All Day

My flash fiction with the un-flash name has been published by Everyday Genius.

Notes/acknowledgements: Fictional apartment building located near non-fictional city dwelling of Charlie Walter and Christine Farren. Interior decor of Bethany's flat inspired by The Selby is in your place. Dorian's perspective on cats lifted wholesale from Matthew Barbato.
(Thanks, Matthew. I know I should have asked first.)

Grandparents Heart Babysitting

NANO's Volume 6 Number 1 features my latest piece of flash fiction, "Grandparents Heart Babysitting". Huge thanks to the editors - certainly for the inclusion, but also, and perhaps more importantly, for their attention to detail, their push to get every word just right.

If you like things to read, short things, stories that move you and leave you wanting more, fictional flings, order your copy here.

Outside of Cars

Read my short story "Outside of Cars" in Corium Magazine's Issue 19.
I mean, if you want.
Just so you know what you're getting yourself into, here's a bit of my correspondence with the editor.
"Your story made me very uncomfortable, which means it made me feel something, which is what we look for at Corium. As long as it's well-written, of course! And your story is, so I am happy to publish it."
Results will more than likely vary.
