Today's story is at Flash Fiction Online. It's "The Sun Belt," about our sun's intentions in making our little spherical home.

This is my second pro-rate sale. I'm very excited and am grateful to any readers or commenters over on FFO. You can read the story by clicking here.

  5. Congrats! A very nice story, and a super accomplishment. How many days for you? ;^) Loved the first line and the fusion instead of fission -- both I wish I had written. Peace...

  9. Mari, isn't that weird? Though I submitted mine several hundred days ago, so I disavow anything but serendipity. I actually submitted aiming for April Fools rather than Earth Day.

    Helen, I recognized you through the other profile, Helen. Thank you very much for popping over there, too.

    Linda, thought you might ask. It was actually over two hundred days ago. They do take a while for their slush pile. Have you heard back yet?

    Cathy, I think the "oblate" line is going over very well so far!

    Alan and Laura, thank you very much for popping over there. The more people comment and spread the story out for hits, the better chances I have of establishing a relationship with FFO. I'm so glad you folks are enjoying this story.

  16. T.S. and Aidan, thanks for the congratulations and the comments. And Tim and Lou, thank you for the praise. I'm glad you enjoyed the sun's little tale.

    Steve and Jax, I try for different slants now and then. Brightens up the routine of writing daily. Thank you kindly for the double comments, Steve.

    Sonia, one hopes we've cheered her up.
