As promised, here is my latest short story. It is published in the online version of [PANK] Magazine, a literary journal that has a bent toward experimental work. I never thought of my writing as experimental, but I kind of like how cutting edge it makes me seem. Moreover, I’m ecstatic a reputable literary journal has given me recognition. (I know many of you probably have not heard of [PANK], but it’s a name that circles in the literary community.)
Founded in 2006 by M. Bartley Seigel, the nonprofit literary arts collective [PANK] — PANK Magazine, Pankmagazine.com, the PANK Little Book Series — is committed to fostering access to emerging and experimental poetry and prose, from its brightest and most promising writers, to its most adventurous readers, across a variety of delivery platforms.
I’m still trudging along in my thesis. It seems lately, my other less important writing commitments have usurped the more important stuff. How is it that I am fully aware of this contrary phenomenon yet I haven’t done anything about it? Maybe I need a lesson or two in priority management.
I have, however, with the help of my tech-savvy husband (who so graciously put together this website for us) been working on getting my official writer’s website up and running. The domain name was bought long ago–I guess you could say John’s always believed in me–but right now, if you go to www.christineha.com, it points to my blog, www.theblindcook.com. Pretty soon, christineha.com should get a facelift, and it’ll feature my portfolio, if you will. Currently, the work on it has been postponed because I am in dire need of a haircut and some eyebrow grooming. Gotta look cute for the potential agents and publishers! Plus, looking good helps me feel better, which makes living with Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO) a little easier.
