Flash Pulp

13 Apr

In a couple of hours I’ll be posting the first episode of a project I’ve been working on that I’ve been calling “Flash Pulp”. It’ll be a 400 to 600 word piece of flash fiction, in both text and audio, three times weekly. Weird, fantasty and adventure tales to make the pulse race.

At my end it serves a few different purposes: a broad canvas for me to carry out some bizarre writing experiments, a rolling deadline that forces me to keep the juices flowing, and an opportunity to burn off some juvenile tendencies.

I was hoping to have things up yesterday, but there’s been some growing pains. Things are out of my hands at this point – as soon as the recording is complete, we’ll be under way.

    Wow. That’s awesome. Good luck man. I’m always trying to figure things out to get me writing instead of slacking and stuff like that. Power to you man!

    Thanks – there’s a little self-consciousness, but I’m sure I’ll get over it – and I’ll be better off for having the pressure.

    Tell some muthas!

    That was excellent!!! Both Rob and I sat and listened intently! We can’t wait to hear tonight’s recording. We both enjoyed it as we used to enjoy reading your writing when you were home.

      Hehe, thanks. Be warned though – tonight’s episode has some cussin’!
