This is a totally awesome concept and I would like to know more…

Would you have any interest in featuring on my blog at all…?

That’s amazing! I’m off to check out shortshortshort.com now…I’m a huuuuge fan of flash fiction.

That’s very interesting … thanks for sharing!

I’m glad that you featured Bruce. I too was impressed by his proactive approach when I met him at Whidbey several years back. So much so that I featured him in The Writer’s Workout as an example of how to produce yourself as a fiction writer. I get so many “yeah, buts” from fiction writers and writers of other genres who want to say that platform and producing your own career make perfect sense for nonfiction, but they don’t get it for fiction. To which your blog post answers, “Well, do you get it now?”


Fabulous as usual! What a grand idea! I am rather inspired to write short stories now.

And if anyone needs a recommendation on the quality of Bruce’s work, I’ve been a happy reader for a couple of years now, and am continually impressed by his inventive story concepts, quirky characters and ripe turns of phrase. He’s got the goods.

wow, love this

Such a simple model, but oh so effective. Congrats on this, I love it 🙂

It goes to show what having a small community can do.

Thanks for hosting this, Jane. I don’t know if Bruce will get these comments, but I wish him all the best. Being from Oregon long ago (although I’m a Beaver, not a Duck!), I think his slogan “Locally Sourced, Organically Grown Short Fiction” is perfect for Eugene! Kudos to him!

Like Jane, I met Bruce at the Whidbey MFA Residence many moons ago. I wrote about him in my latest book, The Writer’s Workout, and I am about to write about him again in my micro-publishing column for Willamette Writers. 🙂 I not only love his idea. I love his staying power. 🙂
