I love publishing essays in print journals, but the downside is that only one of my six Notable Essays in BEST AMERICAN ESSAYS is available to read online. So I'm thrilled that NEW OHIO REVIEW is going to post a lot of its content from issues 21 to 23 online, including my essay "Haunting Houses." Steve was looking over my shoulder when I filled out the permission form, and he urged me to say yes, I'd do a recording, and now I'm wondering whether that was a good idea. Not sure whether Garage Band on the Mac is as easy to use as it used to be, but I'll give it a try.
I just finished a draft of an essay for THE LUNATICS' BALL that I've been expanding and compressing and reworking and revising for a couple of years now. The newest version is labeled draft #25. Sent it out to one place that asked to see work from me soon, fingers crossed. Print journals generally take at least several months to respond, even as long as a year.
