Great bit of  writing by Len Kuntz.  Great idea about Michael Seidlinger!
Welcome to #FutureLitDarlings, a series dedicated to authors I (in my personal opinion) are really writing amazing, unique stuff. How it works: I call out a handful of authors, ones that might not get as much attention in and around various lit circles as they should, be it because they are new ...

One Writer's Awakening: Andre Dubus III
I'm at the point in Andre Dubus III's memoir Townie when he describes that moment in his life when he had his first very vivid realization he wanted to write.  No, wait, that's not what he says.  He says, he didn't want to write, he had to write. In this pa...

Hint Fiction: Three
The Landing Silhouettes sway under a hunter’s moon.
Crouching in muck, Dad whispers, “Humans, returning after 40 years.” I ask,
“What do they want?” He frowns. “Us.” You Thought You Could Crush Her Day lifts its tattered curtain; wind rips
through wheat. Ar...

Going through my list of stories and found this one I'd forgotten I'd written.  A fantastical humor.

Writers Chat with Bonnie ZoBell

Wow! I can't believe Aaron did this!!  I am impressed.  I'm into the number 12 myself.  It took me twelve YEARS to write a book.
