Blogging the Flan, Part I

Light blogging this week because, among eleven thousand other things, I'm serving as one of the (three) pre-judges for this year's Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. Our task is to select 7 - 10 semi-finalists each; Nancy Zafris, the series editor, will select the winners. Don't let anyone say Americans don't care about literature! Some fifteen boxes have yielded an unholy mountain of mansucripts, now piled up on the floor and chairs in my dining room (the table itself couldn't take all the weight). More anon.

P.S. "So You Want to Be a Writer" by Charles Bukowski.
