WIP Thursday. Just ‘cuz.


I feel like I’m buried under projects, and I need to dig myself out before NaNoWriMo.  This morning I came to the conclusion that I’m going to have to let some things go.  There are a couple of anthology deadlines that I’m just going to miss, and that’s okay.  I’m trying to prioritize, and it’s interesting how things are shaking out.

So!  WIP Wednes…er, Thursday!  I polished Big Man Ben, which now has a new, less blatant title.  I’m going to submit it today.  I’m working on two different short pieces, but I find that I’m more distracted by my Demon story that keeps popping up in the back of my mind.  I stopped working on that a YEAR ago, can you believe it?  I’ll write a scene every now and then, but the bulk of it remains unwritten.  Who knew.

Good news!  I was accepted into Robert Swartwood’s Hint Fiction anthology!  Apparently I am sharing space with Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen Dunn, Jeremy D. Brooks, Barry Napier, and L.R.Bonehill.  I am stunned, and thrilled, and this just rocks.  Seriously.

Also, Tweet the Meat will be having a Mercedes extravaganza!  They’ll be running two of my horror tweets, one today and the other tomorrow.  They’re also going to have a special Halloween Tweet contest, so stop by and enter.  I totally dig this magazine.  Tasty daily morsels of bite-sized horror?  Sold, baby!

  1. Woo hoo! I can’t imagine why that demon story would keep popping into your mind. I’m sure it has nothing to do with your annoying friend… Haha!

    Yea on the acceptance into the Hint Fiction anthology!

  2. Congrats, Mercedes! I’ve just looked at the author list: Braunbeck, Carroll, Clegg, Ketchum, Straub – these guys are like gods to me. I’m so looking forward to this one – it seriously rocks.

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo. I’m still too scared to do this… maybe next year.
