In the right column, I’ve compiled a list of magazines that I like to visit every now and then, to get my fill of literature and art. Do take a look. I surfed into TopWriteCorner.com , hoping that after over a year of no updates, there’d be one. My favourite section of TWC is Fractal by Des Smith.
Fractal is a column of short-shorts, or commonly referred to as Flash Fiction. 5 minutes, max of reading. The thing about Des’ writing is, that you’re usually caught off guard. I recommend that you check the following links out, but I must warn you – they’re not for the faint hearted:
•Fractal (better than going from the main URL)
•Darkside (Des’ homepage. Doesn’t seem to be working right now)
•A short story at Danse Macabre (the page is full of posts, so I suggest you search for ‘The Cult’ by ‘The Darkside’)
Also, if you click on ‘July 2004′ in the Archives’ section of the right column of this blog, you’ll be taken to a page that has all that I’ve ever written. Everything that’s been completed, anyway. I didn’t realise how much I’ve written over the years until I compiled this yesterday, and while I was reading some of the stuff, I felt that my style was a little blasé in the longer stories, and plots became predictable towards the end. I think I’ll embrace the Absurdist genre – a lot more fun. A lot more freedom to do absolutely crazy things like Cafe Sunrise and Release.
