East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

Brushing shoulders with the greats


One of the most interesting bits in the #StoryADayMay challenge I am doing is, the daily prompts we get and must develop into short stories come from professional writers that support the initiative.

And so today I got a writing prompt from Joe R. Lansdale – a giant in the field and one of my favorite writers.
When I opened this morning’s mail I was starstruck for a few moments, then copied and pasted the prompt in the Scrivener file in which I am writing all my stories.
The prompt is really good, and I really look forward to developing it.
And I think – should I be able to write the story – I’ll post the finished work here for you all to read.

Just a little patience.

In other news: I’ve just got contracted for a new story for a forthcoming anthology, and there’s another coming… things are picking up.
