I still have enough spaghetti sauce left over for a few more spaghetti meals. I made the sauce earlier in the week. Spaghetti sauce is one of the few things I do not cook in my crock pot. I cook my spaghetti sauce on top of the stove. This batch of spaghetti sauce has onions and ground beef in it. I also have parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper as condiments.
A writer has to eat.
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! It’s karaoke tonight at Nico’s in Little Italy. Karaoke revitalizes the Old Soldier. It makes me feel young again. But karaoke is not all fun and games. I pass out my business card. It’s part of my campaign to promote this magazine. And yes, it does work.
Although I publish writers from all over the world, I want the magazine to be grounded in a local readership as well as an international readership. This is why I blog about Armand’s and Nico’s, my favorite bar and my karaoke bar, both which are in Little Italy here in Pittsburgh, a ten minute walk from my apartment building. I live in Oakland, home to the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University and a couple of other universities. Oakland is full of universities. It’s a great neighborhood for a flash fiction writer.
And I write commentaries on the two local professional sports teams, the Pittsburgh Pirates (baseball) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (football).
There is a method to the Old Soldier’s madness.
