My editing schedule is currently full for September, but I still have room for new projects in October and November, so please email me if your draft will ready for editing around this time and I’ll pencil you in! However, I’m just about to jump on my bike and ride from Berlin to Copenhagen, so if you send me a query I won’t be able to reply until after September 15. Until then, I’ll be busy riding my ass off, camping who-knows-where, and hopefully reading a lot of SFF (the Kindle is fully loaded). See you in two weeks. 🙂
V.S. pritchett’s description of a short story is ‘something glimpsed from the corner of the eye, in passing’. And our task as short story writers is to grab that moment with both hands and invest it with all of the power and humanity and sympathy we can. To develop our skill at language and characterisation and structure and dialogue – our fundamental accuracy – for one reason. To tell the truth.
