"CRC's 250-Word Stories"

Here's an (ongoing) collection of short stories in 250 words or less.
The theme right now is monsters. I'm using the alphabet as structure-- "A" is for "Architeuthis," etc.

I'm not sure how often I'll update, or be able to update-- but give me a year. I'm sure I'll flesh it out.

Добро пожаловать!-- "Well met!"

My name's Christopher. Thanks for stopping by.

I generally write SF.
If I'm feeling good, I write horror.
If I'm feeling down, I write comedy

"Comedy equals green because shut up."
- William Shakespeare

Here's what I want to do with this blog:

1.) Write.

...That is, write to keep my writing sharp. Opinion pieces, short fiction, and copies/links to other work I've written can all go here. I'm already thinking of a 250 word project...

2.) Post updates on my writing submissions.

I've got a horde of unpublished short fiction on my computer which I'm constantly adding to-- and I'm just getting to the point of sending it to publishers en masse. (Let the rejection slips: COMMENCE!)

3.) Share general news with you. 

Maybe "news" is a bit of a misnomer. I mean just general stuff, like how a writer I admire, Daryl Gregory, responded to a Tweet I made about a day ago. That's pretty big for me-- go read "Damascus" to see why. That same night I stayed up writing a horror yarn until 4:06AM. I'm nearly done editing it-- who knows, this blog may function as a writing journal as well.

Anyway, nice to meet you.
