Nanoism; Semiprozine Authors; Googling  

The twitterzine Nanoism is going to publish (and pay me for) a twitterfic that I call "Without Sentimentality" (although officially it has no title). It'll appear on May 29th. I'd love it if you'd all take the twenty seconds to read it. (Hey, the cents-per-word rate for Nanoism are higher than the SFWA minimum! *Snort*)

Somebody recently did a survey of editors to spot the hottest up-and-coming writers writing for the semiprozines. I note with pleasure that both tinaconnollyand camillealexaare on it. Good going!

Oh -- and I noticed that, when you Google the name "Schneyer", this LJ page is fourth-from-the-top. Not bad, considering that I share a surname with a famous folk singer and a leading legal ethicist.

Got my box of bargain-price books from Small Beer Press. Feels like Christmas.

Tonight -- Star Trek with the spouse. First date for a long time.

Current Location: Nice and warm
Current Music: lawnmowers outside

Let us know about the movie. I hear even people that hated Star Trek (I never watched the show) liked it.

Twitterfic. All these new sites and words cropping up. I'll have to check Twitter. Looking forward to reading this.

Hey, Rachel. We didn't go. Kid had a migraine. We'll try again later.

Enjoy Trek! I thought it was a great film.

*Sigh* Last minute kid crisis, and we didn't go. Wound up seeing Back to the Future II instead. Kids loved it, Dad wanted to read his copy of Celestis instead...

Time travel, what's not to love?

Great Scott! I hope your child feels much better today.

Congratulations on the forthcoming publication! Nanoism looks like an interesting market; I think I may try and send something in for their contest.

Thanks, Beth. I think you should definitely take a crack at these twitterfic markets. Obviously you're skilled at the short-short form already, and I expect that this provides some visibility...

Congrats on the sale!

and yes, there is a lot of great new talent coming up through the semipro ranks.

Thanks, Michael.

As to the semiprozines, I was just chortling because I could name-drop. I love to name-drop. ;)

'Twitterfics'. Good grief. Will nothing stop this poster child for the diminishing attention span of the youngest generation?

Have you posted any of your 'twitterfics' before? Because I had to pop over to the twitterzine via your link to find out/confirm what they were. Maybe I've forgotten.

You're a Trek fan I believe ... I'll be curious to know your opinion of the movie. When your children allow you to go see it. :-)

Hey, Brad. Nope, haven't posted any before. The idea never occurred to me. As with any restricted form, the challenge is to make the restrictions work in your favor. Thus far, much of what I've sean on twitterzines like Thaumatrope and Tweat the Meat have been pretty gimmicky.

Still haven't seen the movie. Working on it.
