New Short Story Out & Available Online!

It’s been a while since I last posted, but I’ve been up to good things. One of them was finally finding the right ending for a story I wrote over a year ago and getting it accepted by Hevria. You can find my sci-fi short/modern day moshel up there now. Just follow this link. I’d love to hear either in the comments on this post or on Hevria what you think of the story.

In other writing news, I’m still cranking out a humor column every other week. You can find all those columns in The Jewish Home – LA. I’m still waiting to hear back from my editor about the manuscript I submitted at the conclusion of NaNoWriMo.

In the meantime, I’m back to work on my old, at least five-years running WIP. I’m giving it one last “go” before consigning it to the desk drawer (aka the cemetery for dead stories). I’ve given myself the deadline of January 18, 2018 to have a coherent and complete new-and-improved draft ready. G-d willing, I’ll make it with an assist from my good friend Devorah Talia and Scrivener.

Got any writing projects in store for you in 2018? I’d love to hear about them in the comments.

  1. My work-in-progress is Book #4 in the Peretz Family Adventures series. I’m aiming to launch it on March 8, 2018.

    Another goal for 2018 is to publish two additional novels. One is historical fiction about an ancestor of the Peretz kids. It will be written for older children, in the teen/YA range. The other novel will be Book #5 in the Peretz series.

    If all goes well with time management, and there are no injuries or other disruptive mishaps, then those goals will be attainable.


  2. So, this is as public as I’ve been about this to-date, but my plan is to produce pieces of writing inspired by friends’ artwork. I was tentatively thinking a piece a month, but I think I’d prefer to commit to “a dozen pieces next year” as I’m already struggling with finding the time for the first one in January.

    I’m also planning to listen to more writing books on my commute as listening to Big Magic has been inspirational. I’ll be looking back across your blog for past recommendations, but if you have new ones to add to your list, I’d love to know!


    • Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones really inspired me a lot. Most of the other writing books I’ve enjoyed are much more fiction specific, and I can list those if you want, but Goldberg’s book really can help every writer.

      And I think this project is so awesome! And kinda meta, which entertains me. 🙂
