Just in case anyone out there is still connected to this blog in any way, I thought I should let you know that the Flash Fiction 365 project is finally being turned into a published collection!

Ad Lumen Press will be publishing Balancing Racks: 101 Stories Under 101 Words sometime in 2014.

The process of going through all of the nano stories and deciding which should be in and which ones out was quite a ride.  In the end, my editor and I decided to do away with the stringency of the numbers I rolled on the dice.  We did, for obvious reasons, love the idea of keeping the stories super short, so as I reworked each one, I kept a 100 word maximum.  In addition, we resequenced the tiny tales, taking away any chronology to their original writing.  Instead, I chunked the collection into four sections, so it can be read all at once or in smaller doses.

Anyway, if anyone is reading this, it probably means you were there in 2009 when it all started.  Thank you, once again, for taking the ride with me.  I hope this message finds you thriving.
