So, I’m pleased to announce that my week 3 Clarion story “Stranger has Disconnected” has found a home. It’ll appear in the upcoming Cosmic Vegetable: an Anthology of Humorous Science Fiction.
Again, huge thanks to everyone who gave such great feedback on various drafts, esp. the awkward robot honeybees, who saw the rawest of the raw version, sporged fresh from my sleep-deprived brain.
This is the 2nd piece I’ve sold since Clarion, and the first one of the stories I wrote at Clarion itself. In a move that is certainly related, I’ve signed up for the Clarion Write-a-Thon this year and have decided to sponsor myself for the full amount I’ve made from fiction sales this year. I could not have done it without Clarion (or at least not nearly so quickly or so well), and I’m thrilled to be able to support the Workshop.
The amount puts me over that needed to form a group. If anyone out there wants to join, or indeed sponsor me, check it out! And if you are an aspiring writer, the Write-a-Thon is a great way to get a taste of the Clarion pace–and get a head start on your submission stories for next year. Hope to see you there, or on the page!
