I had some good writing news this afternoon. Firstly I had a
submission I made on Monday accepted (although it won't see the light of day
until 2010, which probably makes it my first hit of next year). I've
also been asked to start a new blog, which will run in addition to this
one and the EMLN posts. More news on both soon.
I went to see Moon and Antichrist on Tuesday. Moon was somewhat
underwhelming – a pedestrian science fiction story full of
inconsistencies and logic gaps. Antichrist, while gruelling and
unpleasant, was a stunning movie, far exceeding my expectations. There's a good discussion of Antichrist here.
I love six-word stories, but it's rare to find satisfying ones. This one by Colin Houlson is pretty good.
