My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

I’m getting published!

Category: Life

I may be depressed as all Hell, I may day-dream about bleeding out, but I do have some good news. I’m getting a piece of my flash fiction published in the poetry section of Weird Tales Magazine! It’s the first thing I’ve ever submitted to a magazine, so I’m pretty excited, and definitely surprised.

Happiness, loss, depression, anything can be good for writing if you let it.

    Tap That

    Few instances of Lightening in a bottle feel or appear that way at first……

    I wanted to say, this sentence says so much, “I may be depressed as all Hell, I may day-dream about bleeding out, but I do have some good news.”

    I’ve read a lot writing/literature often featuring depression, Sylvia Plath, etc & I’ve never seen anything like this sentence – original.

    Arguably the only thing that is good for writing. Congrats. May the door fly open in the middle of a word sucking tornado hungry for more.

    Keep the writing coming.

    That mag’s been out since 1923, Wow.

    you may be surprsed, we are not.

    Dude, I can dig your ‘surprised’ feeling. Sometimes the greatest things we write get ripped, other stuff we just toss out gets published. The one thing you’ve exhibited in the 10 years I’ve known you is persistence, which is the hallmark of a great writer.

    And Weird Tales? To me, they’re in the top five of speculative fiction — in my mind, there’s Asimov’s, Analog, F&SF and Weird Tales. This is akin to writing a screenplay/pilot and getting it on a major network!

    Mike, I am amazed and inspired by your brutal honesty with your thoughts and writing–you have so much to offer, please continue to share.

    I have always said it ” You are the Best” ! LOve you

    Fantastic news, Michael. Congratulations!

    Thank you all!

    Susie: I just wanted to say something really honest about myself.
