Writerly Grace: A good start for the new year with full-hearted gratitude to the universe!
I’ve just signed the contract for my poem “A Personal Index of Our Times.” It will appear on Strange Horizons maybe next week or so. I wrote the first version of the poem two years ago, and then took a long break from most things writing and publishing. Mad-stupid? Yeah! I know.
The good news is that I’ve started to write again. I wrote and sold a new poem “The Valley of Kings” to Star*Line in December. The work will appear in one of the next two issues.
I have a story coming out this year: “The Architecture of Loss” in Kalicalypse: an Anthology of Science Fiction from the Subcontinent from Future Fiction, Italy (2022).
I wrote three short stories in the past two-three months; one of which is a chapter for a historical novel. Writing gets better with writing, that’s for sure; the last story was the best writing I have done in a long time.
Also, I developed the outline for a trilogy of novels, but I have decided to put it on hold to write a shorter standalone novel first.
Mithila Review (and “India 2049”) is on hiatus until further notice. I will bring it back when funds/time permits.
