The Old Soldier fell into his usual bad habit of feast and famine. Well, I did get in two Friday nights of karaoke at Del’s in Bloomfield in Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy” this month already; and now I’ll just have to wait for the first Friday in March.
I published another guest writer on 13 February 2013. From now on the Old Soldier is going to publish his guest writers throughout the month instead of trying to publish them all in the first week of the month.
That will give readers more to look forward to all month-long.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a blog for writers.

Woman As Art
Not only do I have in place the guest writers who will appear in the February issue of this magazine, I pretty much have in place the guest writers who will appear in the March issue, too.
This is the Old Soldier, letting you know a little bit about submissions.
You definitely have to send your best. The competition is getting stronger every month. I find I have to pass on stories that one year ago I would have been happy to publish.
Unless a writer is a relatively accomplished writer, his or her story will probably not be accepted for publication. The writer should have a history of writing and publication.
First efforts will seldom make the cut now.
These circumstances may be a bad thing for aspiring writers, but it’s a good thing for the readers of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from a few blocks from Sonny’s Tavern and Bloomfield, Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy.”
