Here are some bits and pieces for 11 June 2014.
Hello, my brother and sister fans of erotic flash fiction who live all over the world! Welcome to my girlie magazine. I was going to title this post “Gloom Over Liberty Avenue In Little Italy” because the last few days have been humid but overcast with scattered thunder showers. And the city will get more of the same the next few days.
The problem with that title is, the Old Soldier does not feel particularly gloomy. Page views are up, the gangbang stories are as popular as ever, my regular contributors continue to supply me with excellent erotic flash fiction and the decision to feature a different erotic flash fiction story on the front page every day was one of my better editorial ideas.
Sure, I would like to be richer, younger, better looking and taller; but what the hell? I have my health and I publish a great online girlie magazine. I’m doing okay.
Here are some more bits and pieces for 11 June 2014.
Even the new “Bits & Pieces” series is working out great. The series gets hits and takes the pressure off of me. It’s like jazz. I can improvise. I still want to stay within certain parameters. I still want to touch on things like karaoke as performance art, sex as art and entertainment, writing, flash fiction, the ins and outs of publishing a girlie magazine and friendly, local dive bars; but B&P is real artistic freedom for me. Jack Kerouac and his method of writing comes to mind.
Speaking of friendly, local dive bars, I’m going to post this and then stroll into Little Italy and have a beer at Armand’s. I’ll pick up a six-pack of beer and stroll back and maybe later on today I’ll get an idea for a more topic-focused blog post.
In the meantime explore the site. And don’t forget that I feature a different erotic flash fiction story on the front page every day.
Keep reading and keep writing that erotic flash fiction.
Those are the bits and pieces for 11 June 2014.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the PittsburghFlashFiction, a different kind of girlie magazine.
