Re: Jeff Carlson has passed away

Cancer at 48. That sucks.
Sorry for your, and his family's loss.
And the community who will not read his future stories.

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Rui,
It's difficult to return the favor when I don't send you a story. wotf001
I have one brewing, which may be too damn dark for WotF, but it must be exorcised from my brain.
Probably for Q1...

Re: So you want to write sci-fi?

This is spam, but very well targeted spam...

And that magazine or whatever should not just use her last name. It's just too strange seeing Rambo in isolation like that.

Re: First Four-Fifty Critique Exchanges

Do I have someone's 450?
I've got one on my desktop, and I can't find in my e-mail where I received it. Very strange because I'm an e-mail freak...
Anyway, reply here or send a PM if I have yours and haven't replied.
Incidentally, very good anonymity. wotf009

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Well I know I'm not going to make it this quarter. Too many unexpected health problems that I'm still trying to deal with. Didn't even have the time or energy to write these last few months. Hopefully I can get back on track for the next quarter. It's a whole new year with 4 new chances to make it ...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

Finally have a working second draft. It's far from perfect, but it's definitely better than the first draft was. I've got almost three weeks to get the story ship-shape for submission, depending on things and stuff. I feel much better about the odds of having this done in time than I did last Wedne...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - Volume 35

I'm hoping to write something completely new.
Lord knows if this will happen, but as I sit here now, I'd like to think that a completely new story is going to be what I sub, and it's as of yet unimagined. That idea gives me a thrill, and a boost.
