Book It

T. Rex has an idea.

Inspired by Bobby Cramer, Mustang Bobby’s blog about his novel in progress, and by my own unpublished writings, I came up with an idea.

Now, like most of you other bloggers, one of the reasons I blog is so that I have a regular writing gig. Like some of you, I’m sure, I got into writing by writing poetry fiction, not political stuff. And, like many of you, I have a resevoir of unpublished fiction and poetry that is just screaming at me for an audience.

So, here’s what I propose. A group of us should get together and create our own online magazine for the purpose of publishing our fiction, poetry, drama and other literary works. Theoretically, we would push it in the direction of becoming a legitimate publication that amateur writers would submit stuff to and the like, maybe we’d even appear in literary market and things like that. We could also include articles and essays on literature, reviews, and stuff about getting published or the art of writing.

As you can probably imagine, I like the idea very much.
