 Say it will be so…

Despite slashes to arts funding and a rapidly changing publishing industry, an email this morning relit my hope for fiction writers. According to American Short Fiction:

Date: Fri, 23 Dec 2011 06:13:19 -0500
To: me
From: them
Subject: Writers are the next rock gods

…Maybe you’re OK with a world where there’s a widening disconnection from art and people feel powerless to stop that. We’re not. We don’t want to talk about whether fiction is dying, we want to show you how deeply it’s thriving…

The Editors

I believe! And, I want to shout it to the world, as you can see. I promise to work on the outfit before I hit a stage anywhere though. Until then, pay American Short Fiction a visit. They really are pretty awesome.

Three cheers for the future rock gods–writers!

Three cheers for Edison’s incandescents and a ‘BOOO!’ for lawmakers and others who have nothing better to do.   ~ N

“Seeing the Light”

by Moira Allen, Editor, http://www.writing-world.com 

I don’t often use this space for “advocacy,” but this month I’m going to make an exception. This month, I’m going to take a stand for something that is of rather great importance for writers: Light. Many of you are probably aware that a ban on incandescent light bulbs is scheduled to go into effect in the U.S. in January 2012…What is offered in place of such bulbs is a choice between halogen and “compact fluorescent” bulbs… <<read more>>
