I have had work in a Bridge House Anthology - A Helping Hand in their Alternative Renditions collection - and short stories and flash fiction on line at Cafe Lit. I was very pleased my The Magic Flute was picked to go in The Best of Cafe Lit 4, the annual print edition of the best of the online stories.
It's always fascinating to talk with other writers about their work and their creative processes and I am much more comfortable about talking about my work now. I was also sharing with someone that one piece of advice I found really helpful from Stephen King (I think it was from his marvellous On Writing) was that you don't need others to tell you that you are a writer. If you write, you are a writer. That simple piece of advice has helped boost my confidence as I write (I guess all writers look for some vindication) and I think that confidence shows in what and how I write.
Best of all, today I was asked to sign a copy of The Best of Cafe Lit 4. To date, when I've been asked to sign my autograph, it's been on the bottom of a cheque to pay some horrible bill (not that there's ever really a nice one!).
