Fugit walked back to his truck with the spring air crisp on his cheeks, an odd sensation for Spring in Florida. The fate of “Vanishing from Delta Finituum” is out of his control, at least for now. It’s been prepared, packaged, and shipped. He balked when first learning that the submission process for this particular publisher required a hard-copy. A what?! But now, with the process behind him, he thinks differently of the venerable process.
A discovery was made this morning, a discovery borne from a memory. A discovery made possible by, believe it or not, Cheetos and OP-Tank-Paladins (thanks, Jonny. Fugit says, “Sorry for the ridiculous nerd-reference.”).
Fugit has been working on his Fantasy / Sci-Fi world setting for many years (and he is still debating on what to call it!). Part of that process, besides creating hundreds of pages of setting details, was realizing and rendering a full-color, highly detailed, world-map. Not a continent map, or a city map, but a world map.
The problem? Well … the angry computer Gods, who apparently love to eat PC harddrives, ate his PC harddrive a few years ago. Read the rest of this post …
UPDATE: Fugit has completed the second version of a piece called “Pura’s Intention.”
This version is about twice as long, but still under the 1,000 word maximum he set for himself. After mulling over the original for some time, and considering different publications, he came to the conclusion that he had started the story in the wrong place. Originally the story had opened with Fandrengr’s (Fand for short. Nobody calls him Fandrengr!) hand trembling, covered in blood, holding a dagger to the neck of some bastard aristocrat. It was too confusing of a starting point and didn’t allow for a building and release of tension. Fugit knew that first Fand must scale the wall of DeBeche manor and show you his nerves, apprehension, and motivation … Read the rest of this post …
Note from Fugit:
It’s come to my attention that a number of people were still searching for and clicking on the old program I built for the old site called: Beats per Minute (BPM / Tempo) to Milliseconds Delay Calculator. I’ve linked it right there, as you can see. If you’re looking for it, and you were linked here, just click that link and enjoy.
If you’re not a musician, and you’re wondering what the heck that thing is right there, it’s simple: Read the rest of this post …
UPDATE: Fugit reports that “Quench Yourself” is still in the consideration process. He eagerly awaits the chance to update everyone when it sells.
Fugit invites readers to the eastern desert region of Chad, Africa, in a future, post-merger world. It’s been decades since the genocide in darfur began. Yet refugee camps, swollen with tens of thousands of suffering souls, still dot the deadly border between Chad and Sudan.
UPDATE: Fugit reports that his flash-length piece, “Pura’s Intention” is still in the consideration process. Wait for it … One of these updates will read, “Sold.”
Fugit is trying to sell a story about Fandrengr, a young Vell, and his crime of passion. The first iteration of the story, called “Pura’s Intention”, was a super-short flash piece of just about 500 words. With sites on a new venue, which shall remain nameless, Fugit has expanded this word count a little bit and fleshed out the scene. The rewrite is marinating. When it tastes just write Fugit will submit the new piece and hope for the best. Read the rest of this post …
