Lessons from a Consentual Interogation

#1  Do not agree to meet at a bar. Although the interviewer may insist otherwise, alcohol may do more than simply "contribute to a more creative and compelling exchange of opinion".

#2  Do understand that all answers are final answers.

#3  Do not under any circumstances reveal a literary man crush, thereby turning any opportunity to meet the admired subject into a comical game of avoidance on par with sticking a soapy finger into a glass of floating pepper flakes (yeah, you know the joke).

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.

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.)

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.
