Semi-publishing my short story
Posted by Amos M. Carpenter
A recent post from Nicholas C. Rossis where he published his short story, The Hand of God, on his blog reminded me of a short story I’d written quite a while ago. My dilemma was that I wanted to share it with the writers in my “blog circle”, but I didn’t want to just publish it publicly on my blog, just in case I ever decided to enter it into a competition or something. Not that I do that (I’m with Mark, the Aspirant Wordificer on that), but I don’t want to burn bridges just because I’m not sure I’ll ever use them.
So I’m semi-publishing (if that wasn’t a word, it is now) my short story by password-protecting the post. That’s the best solution I could come up with for now. That way, it’s not really published, but anyone who reads my blog (there aren’t that many anyway 😉 ) can contact me (you can find my email address on my about page) and I’ll happily send them the password required to access the short story.
Here’s the password-protected post containing my short story, Big Bang:
Feel free to send me feedback via comments or email if you do read it.
But please be nice, I’m kind of anxious – I’ve never shown any of my writing to anyone I didn’t know personally! And this short story is from a few years ago… I’ve improved since then!
On second thoughts… be honest. Let me have it.
(No, wait… be nice… no, uhm… AARGH!)
