Quiet times for writing crimes

You may have noticed that, after the frenetic multiple daily posts of last week, things have quietened down a bit at NFI. It just so happened that my scheduled Neverscapes reposts coincided with a big bundle of other writing. There’s not much on the cards this week, although as usual there’ll be the del.icio.us link round-ups to sift through for tasty Intertron plankton, plus Friday Flash Fiction at the end of the week.

Speaking of F3, I missed out last week which was a bit unfortunate as it was something of a special date. That’s right, the F3 project was one year old last week (Independence Day? Mediocre film). Gareth Lyn Powell, the mad scientist who first shocked this multi-headed monster into life with jolts of barely-harnessed lightning, posted about this auspicious occasion here and here.

The birthday of my own involvement with F3 will be Friday 25th, or possibly Friday 1st August, as it was a few weeks before I joined in the fun. I’ll try and prepare something special for those dates. Perhaps there will be cake!

In the meantime, drawn from the pieces I’ve written and posted over the last almost-year, here’s a selection of some of my favourites.

Grey Matter (Sept 7th, 2007)
I Am Colony (Sept 21st, 2007)
This Urban Aesthetic (Jan 25th, 2008)
Love Story (Feb 8th, 2008)
Carry These Songs Like A Comfort Wherever You Go (Mar 8th, 2008)
My Mother The Robot (Apr 4th, 2008)
Interdiction Zone (May 16th, 2008)
Earthbound (June 6th, 2008)
Skyflowers (June 20th, 2008)

  1. […] it I suspect that this week’s celebration of one year of Friday Flash Fiction will be slightly overshadowed by Post a Rejection Letter […]
