Hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers wherever you are! The Old Soldier is reporting for duty. As the month of April approaches, the Old Soldier is full of anticipation.
The home opener for Pirates baseball is 31 March. I’ll be back covering my beat in Little Italy in four more days. I’ll be back covering karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy the first Saturday night in April; and several of my regular contributors will be emailing new submissions in April.
You can’t beat it with a stick!
And because of my new (refurbished) computer, blogging once again is pure joy. My high-speed Internet connection is functioning at full capacity. Loading times are measured in seconds.
With my old computer, I use to have big-time problems formating erotic flash fiction submissions over 800 words long. I’ve run several experiments and submissions over 800 words should no longer be a problem.
The new word limit is 500 to 900 words. The submissions guidelines have already been changed to the new word limit.
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister readers and writers of erotic flash fiction! Even though it’s going to be overcast all day long in Pittsburgh, the high will be in the 50s. It will be a good day for the Old Soldier to return his books to the (public) Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh down by the University of Pittsburgh, a 20 minute walk from my apartment.
I’ll pick up another load of books to continue my self-education. A writer’s education is never done.
Read! Study! Write! Publish!
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, a blog of art, culture, creative writing, local interest and sex as art and entertainment.
