Are You Serial?

Yes, yes I am.

I am announcing the launching of a new blog, The Fiction Writers. What will this blog feature?

A large chunk of the articles on the site will actually be serialization of short stories I have written. There are already 4 posts containing portions of the short story Key Relationships. I post updates three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), starting next week. The updates will be about 500 words each.

These stories will have previously been made available to regular visitors of The Soap Boxers, in PDF form. Serialization will allow the stories to reach a new audience, while allowing the readers of The Soap Boxers to ge the first opportunity to see these stories. The readers of the serialized stories will get to the end of the stories months after the PDF is made available to readers of The Soap Boxers.

In addition to my own stories, I am interesting in having my readers submit their own stories. These stories would be published on Tuesdays and Thursday. I can use your name, or I can post the stories anonymously – the choice is yours. If there are writers who would like to produce work for The Fiction Writers on a more consistent basis, this may also be an option. If you are interested in seeing your work displayed on The Fiction Writers, send me an email.

Finally, I will pose a question about writing or writers each weekend. This weekend’s question asks how writers feel about the impact of libraries and used book stores on their income.

In closing, I would like to thank my friend Lazy Man, operator of the web sites Lazy Man and Money and How To Fix. Lazy Man provides hosting and technical support for my blogs simply because he’s a nice guy. If you haven’t visited his sites, drop by and see what he has to say.
