The Old Soldier is ready for his walk around the neighborhood; but I will be walking around the neighborhood as a writer. That makes all the difference in the world.
And if you are a writer, you must get into the habit of walking around, not as John Doe or Jane Doe, but as a writer. Be a sponge. Absorb absorb absorb. Then write write write.
Hello, everyone! The Old Soldier is in good spirits. This is my third blog post of the day and it’s not even 2:00 PM yet. It’s a partly sunny, mild day in Pittsburgh. The PFF Gazette got 105 hits yesterday and tomorrow I’m going to have a few Pabst Blue Ribbon drafts at Sonny’s Tavern.
Paul, one of the owners, has told me that I can put up flyers asking for short story submissions for The Gazette. I have a printer and plenty of paper. Any flyer I make would be pretty crude. But this is an opportunity the Old Soldier cannot pass up.
Keep reading and keep writing that old flash fiction.
