It looks like I'm unflagged, so that's good. I wonder what made them think I was spamming in the first place, with one post and no comments? Weird.

I've been rereading all the stuff I've published since I first started writing online in January 2009. Unfortunately, most of the fiction is no longer available because the people who run the sites that published my work don't have enough space to archive everything for months.

The good news is that Associated Content seems to have realized that I want to start writing articles that match my interests a little better. I've managed to claim a couple content requests that should be fun. Whether or not I end up keeping my separate nonfiction pseudonym, I'll put up links here when they're published. No, really.

Someone also sent me an e-mail after my first entry saying they'd seen my blog and wanted to invite me to, which is a fashion community in closed beta testing. I'm not sure if I'm the best person to talk to about fashion (I'm a fiction writer, seriously), but it looks like it could be interesting. I made an account but haven't done much yet.

So, my writing career is going really well for someone who has no hope of earning actual money. I wonder if getting a short story published counts for anything to the hiring manager of the gas station down the street?


New blog

In short, I write, and I've finally figured out the secret to keeping up with blog posts and publishing effective articles - it's called writing about topics I enjoy.

I'm not off to the best start here since Blogger seems to have flagged me as spam (?), but while I figure that out, I may as well mention some of my published writing here.

I write occasionally for a couple sites, including Associated Content and, but I'd prefer if that type of writing wasn't too closely linked with my fiction-authoring life. I'll probably still post links here from time to time. Gotta get those page views!

I've had short stories published as well, but unfortunately most are no longer available for free online. I'll track down the ones that still are and put up some links tomorrow.
