busy with other stuff. (Sure this is not what an editor waiting for 10 more stories out of me wants to hear, but--)
Some photos published though. This is one of my favorites in the wonderful Anti- poetry journal.
Three in the current issue of Rose Red Review.

“Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises. That thing you had to force yourself to do--the actual act of writing--turns out to be the best part. It’s like discovering that while you thought you needed the tea ceremony for the caffeine, what you really needed was the tea ceremony.”

The short story collection is good. It's won several major awards, so there you go.
I admired how Evans made the familiar "new" and "new" familiar. "Harvest" is a wonderful story about an uncommon practice becoming quite common. "Someone Ought To Tell Her There's Nowhere to Go" is about lost love and things getting way out of hand.
The story "Snakes" is the one I was truly envious of. The last line is magnificent. To me, the last line is what a writer ought to be working for-- and the last line of this story blew me away as a reader and writer. Kudos.

Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.
