Eric’s Writing Blog

The writing blog of Eric Rosenfield



Who I am:
My name is Eric Rosenfield. I’m mostly known (if I’m known at all) for the blog Wet Asphalt, or the online zine YankTheChain which was operational from 1998-2003. Both projects involve(d) JF Quackenbush. I’ve also written non-fiction pieces for The New Haven Review, The Comics Journal, Reluctant Habits, Literary Kicks, Boog City, Anti-Matters and other stuff. I’ve had fiction published at Flashing in the Gutters and poetry in the anthology Issue 1. In my day job I am a web programmer working for a large, international corporation.

I wanted to write a bit about writing itself and my efforts to get published, in a general and rambling sort of way that doesn’t fit in with Wet Asphalt. I spent a lot of time considering whether I should resurrect the blog on or go back to writing in my livejournal, but then I said, screw it, I’ll make a new blog just for this, then I can keep it separate from everything else and people who are specifically interested in it can follow it and those that aren’t can ignore it.

What I’m going to talk about:
How I write.
Which short fiction publications I’ve sent work to, am considering sending work to, what they’re like and what my response from them has been like.
My efforts to publish my first novel.
My efforts to write my second novel.
Thoughts on writing, etc.

As with my other projects, the best way to follow this one is probably by using therss feed with a feed reader such as Google Reader, since I’ll be updating the site irregularly.
