The excitement is building; or, at least it is for the Old Soldier. Will I get swamped with submissions? Or will my inbox remain empty?
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette becomes a paying market for poems, non-fiction and fiction on March 1, 2012.
An Old Soldier’s dream
10,000 hits every month
A new beginning
And 10,000 hits a month for this rag is not a dream. The PFF Gazette has nearly 7,000 hits for February 2012 and there is still one more day left in this month.
How’s everyone doing? It’s pretty quiet here. The weather is nice. I went out for my walk. I tried to watch the movie on tape that I got from the public library yesterday, but it doesn’t play right.
So, I’m doing a little blogging, reading my books on Columbus, the Occupy Wall Street movement and my old history of the Vietnam War. I’m staying out of trouble. I’m eating healthy and doing my breathing and stretching exercises and getting plenty of sleep; but I’ll sure be glad when my Social Security and pension checks arrive on Thursday so that I can get out and have a few beers.
I know I have to live within a budget. So, no free-style spending like the past month after I got my military pension for the first time.
And there’s another thing. I’m not going to be able to afford to have a “Boobs in Pittsburgh” series. I can’t afford it. I mean really, can you see me sitting in a bar and saying to a young woman sitting on the stool next to me, “Excuse me. I’m the editor/publisher of an online magazine and I just started a new series called ‘Boobs in Pittsburgh” where I pay women $100 to appear topless in my magazine. It looks like you have a nice rack. Would you be interested?”
“You dirty old man. Get the hell out of my face before I bitch slap you.”
