My short story, Our Masters, is up for the “Teleport Us” Sci-Fi writing event over at LitReactor. You can find my story here! (http://litreactor.com/events/teleport-us/our-masters)
I would be incredibly happy if you read, rated, and commented on it (truthfully! If it is bad, please be honest and say so, and offer advice on improvement). You need to be a member of LitReactor to do this but it’s rather easy to join. And hey – you can even submit your own stories there for future events! Also, don’t forget to read the other entries for the event. Some of them are really good!
It’s rather funny – I worked hard to get the story done in time which was stressful since I had another deadline, applications to fill out, and a telephone interview to prepare for – but the moment I pressed submit I felt my throat clog up and now I have a terrible cold. I’m lucky it didn’t come a few hours earlier. Truth be told, I actually wanted to revise Our Masters one last time before submitting but I was pushing the deadline.
And now – A quick shout-out to Pete Denton! He asked me to do a “The Next Big Thing” post modelling his own. I will do it soon! I just need to rest for a day to get rid of the cold now when all my deadlines have passed.
I’m also working to get the Live Stream back online. Don’t know what happened to it but since I don’t have rigid working hours at the moment I didn’t bother fixing it. I have one more short story to write before I start Project 3 – which means I will be using the live stream on occasion from then on.
Now I’m heading out (dressed in fifteen and a half layers of clothing) to pick up some new books from the Science-Fiction Bookstore (which is a literal translation from Swedish) and some ice cream for my throat (even though it might not be the best thing to eat).
