So...it's been ten years since I started this blog and it's been a lot of fun. I've met a lot of great writers on their way up, even a few famous ones have stopped by like Ken Bruen and Sean Chercover. We've all shared Snoopy Dances over publications and award winners. The blog even managed to be nominated for a service to the community Spinetingler Award way back when.
The blog gives me pleasure and a feeling of accomplishment. And I get great joying from hearing from writers who get their stories published because I posted a listing.
I never in a million years thought I could keep this blog going for ten years so thank you to all who visit and keeping me going. It's a great pleasure to see your names in so many table of contents for anthologies and magazines. May your success continue!
Thank you all for stopping by.

I just found this beautiful essay by Sabrina Orah Mark that takes the reader into the mind of a writer and the bizarre way imagination takes over her mind and spins out stories. It is elegant, beautiful, heartbreaking, and terribly sad. But it makes perfect sense.
