Well that's interesting - my fiction CV thus far [Sep. 14th, 2010|12:56 am]
Tim Lieder
So I'm going over my Story Tracking Pager for stories that need to be queried and since my computer is fast now, I'm going to look into reprints. So I found that I sold 18 stories in the past 7 years - although about 8 of them were "sold" to free markets. I was dumb. And most of them are no longer available.

  • After the Revolution Whispers of Wickedness Web site dead
  • Gentle Frustration Whispers of Wickedness Web site February 12, 2004

  • Bop Kabala & Communist Jazz [PRO-RATE MAGAZINE] Issue # 3 (pending in January 2011)
There. Found as many links as I could. Kind of sad that Inclinations for Horror Writers is gone. That was my first real sale ($5) and the point where I could call myself a writer by nihilistic_kid's definition (someone pays you to write).

Yeah. That's why I'm seriously thinking of pretending I never wrote that story - but I will try it one more time. But the point that these guys totally don't understand Morrissey and that he's actually making fun of the same teen angst that they are trying to mock but with infinitely more wit is pretty much lost on the story.

Adding the insight that Morrissenny kind of kills the whole Holden Caulfield "patethic guy trying to cover up sad life with attitude" tone of the story. Which might not be all that insightful anyhow.

Eh. Showed it to a friend of mine and his main complaint was the references that he didn't get so I guess I missed out by trying to get a real job when I should have been applying for staff writer jobs at Gilmore Girls.
