Snapshots are suuuper useful for people like me who agonize over writing & rewriting stuff - no longer need to save a buncha files with different versions, they’re all one click apart and easy to roll back or copy from.

FWIW for me the killer feature of Scrivener is the ability to take instant snapshots. For a fiddly writer like me, version control is enough to make me want to use Scrivener even for the flash-est of short stories.

HEY LOOK my name is on the cover! That's a thing! A new thing! That's never happened to me before! I'm in this twice, as it happens, and you get to read the first one in around a week or so: WHY AREN'T MILLENNIALS CONTINUING WORSHIP OF THE ELDER DARK?

Have you read a short story lately that you really loved? If you can, consider subscribing to one of the SFF magazines, or supporting them on Patreon, or kicking in a few bucks some way or another. There are a lot of great magazines out there that could use the support.

That is certainly what I hope is going on with my short fiction this past year...

Chopped liver! That stuff is... definitely an acquired taste. But lo, I have acquired it :)

As I approach 40, I have already become one thing I would’ve hated at 25, small but incontrovertible: a guy who doesn’t listen to music very much.

Nothing makes a writer's day like hearing that one of your stories really moved someone.

This is kinda amazing. Crickets that live on freshly-cooled lava flows... And nowhere else? Nobody knows where they go between eruptions.
