As predicted last week, progress has been a little slow on the short fiction front this week, as it's been half-term and the kids have been off.
Made some progress on SF thriller Malware. I really, really want to complete a draft of this next week. Fortunately I have managed to keep up the with Write1Sub1 scheme in other ways :
Wrote and submitted flash fiction story The Number Six to fellow Ether author Rebecca Emin's It's Only A Number competition.
Wrote and submitted five Twitter poems to Microcosms : First Contact, Guitar Like Hendrix, Shadow Beings, The Howling Dark and "At Night, When He Sleeps" (this latter actually a haiku).
I also wrote a further ten SF haiku at the request of Teri Santitoro, editor of Scifaikuest, as he wanted another five or so for my Featured Poet slot in his November issue : "On The Bioscan", "Stars Fall One By One", "A Flower Unfurls", "Starship Back At Earth", "They Wait In The Dark", "His New Existence", "That First Gentle Kiss", "Explosions Cascade", "Suit Air Exhausted" and "Metal Fingers Flexed".
Teri's already been back in touch and said :
These are great! I may wind up using all of them.
Which is cool. It looks like I'll have 10-15 haiku appearing in Scifaikuest come the autumn ...
