Since 5/30/2010, I have written nine short stories. This was after a lull in writing fiction that lasted for more than six years. They are almost 37,000 words, about 130 pages of double-spaced, Times New Roman text. It feels good to have written this much in a year, along with writing nonfiction and poetry and other nonsense too. I like most of them, but I am sure at least three are awful. Still, I look at my nine stories and I feel pretty happy about them. Then, I think of the revision process and dread creeps in. Yet, if I am to submit any of them anywhere, it's something I need to do. I am always looking for readers and feedback, so if you are at all interested, send me an e-mail at JoshPatton@aol.com.
