Looking for my Short Stories?

I’m trying out some new advertising and looking to guide people who have landed here to the content!

Shorts!

(Page contains links to all of my short stories, essays, and ramblings.)

So, feel free to check some or all of them out. :). I’m adding brief descriptions–very brief–to each right now to help you select.

Eventuality

(The latest short story.)

Definitely feel free to follow me on Twitter, check out my Facebook page, or connect with me directly via email, aaron.safronoff@aaronsafronoff.com.

Enjoy the reads!

New short story published, Eventuality

Eventuality went live today on Self Publisher’s Showcase! I’m pretty happy with this story because I think I’ve woven a few different themes together well, and that the questions it raises do not take away from the fun of the story as it is.

Anyway, the story is also an explanation of how I feel about time: if anything/anyone ever learns to manipulate it directly, then we are already experiencing those effects today. Consciousness is just the timeline we tend to stay on, and sometimes we all meet up:-). If time travel exists? It already will have has happened before.

As always, you can write me at aaron.safronoff@aaronsafronoff.com if you’d like to speak to me directly about this story or any material in the Shorts section, or if you want to tell me to get another drink.

Thank you!

Overdue Update

It’s been too long since my last blog update. Sorry. In personal news, I finally have internet again, but I need to finish running the wires throughout the house, which I’m doing today.

I realized that the cafe job, as much as I loved it, was taking too much time away from my writing job, and ultimately too much time away from my personal writing. I no longer work at Coffeetopia, but it was amazing and I’d go back in a heartbeat. I’m thinking about writing there in the mornings. So far my schedule hasn’t worked out to support that, but I’ll get it in-line soon.

Several new ideas for short stories have been ricocheting around my noggin for the last few weeks, and I’m putting words to one of them today. Should be able to release it soon. The title is, Eventuality. The story is about Sam and Ralph, designers who work at a node in Space-Time. The rest will be in the story…

My work on the graphic novel with Nemrac and The Benefactor continues, and is in full swing again after lots of life interruptions. The interruptions were all wonderful things… no complaints:-). Birthdays, concerts, Halloween Pirate Extravaganza–helping a team of people put together gigantic displays! A boat, a tower, handing out candy, collection food drive donations!–and moving and all that. Anyway, November 1st put me back on full time graphic novel work, and it’s going well.

Now, back to work.

Finally!

At my work having all kinds of problems with the internet, but posting a new short story and a new Echo Chamber.

Enjoy!

Sorry for the lack of posts!

I’ve been displaced for the last several weeks, working out of a tiny suitcase, and travelling.

Everything is good, and I’ve managed to do some work on Pirating side projects, as well as short story and essay ideas, but the main thrust of my effort has been on my current writing job–still not much to disclose there, but the artist involved, Carmen Sinek, is putting together some amazing and inspiring early concepts.

Anyway, I didn’t forget about this page! I’m going to finish my re-write of Corporate Life soon, and I promise it will appear here for free, as always. You can’t stop the signal;-)

Science behind Insider Trading

Some friends helped furnish links with respect to my short story, Insider Trading. I’m still interested in re-working the story, but it was great to get such a response for the work, and to be directed to current research on the topic of brain activity at “near-death.”

Here are the links!

Thank you, Aaron and Jason;-).

Published a new short story

This one is final:-). Thank you to all of my friends who helped edit Insider Trading. It’s wonderful to have so much support, and so many people willing to read and comment on my work.

Special thanks to Kylie, Joe, Zeke, Simon, Mark, Josh, Katherine, Scott, Evangeline for being great sounding boards, editors, and supporters!

Anyway, check it out. Short read, and I think worth your time.

Short Story Fun and Feedback

Over the last week, I released a short story to a handful of friends. The first set of feedback came through and I made several edits, making the story much tighter and much better. However, I sent the new version to one more group, and… well, now I’m considering scrapping the whole thing and starting over. <= That’s not a negative response, I’m just looking at the story in a new way, and I’m not sure which way I like it better.

After some consideration, I decided that I should publish the first version irrespective of whether or not I ever release the new version. Why not give a little more insight into how my writing process works? Did you know that I frequently edit from last paragraph to first? I do.

Anyway, Corporate Life is here:-). I hope you like it!

Also, been working hard on independent contract writing work, which has been great, but do details to report yet. I hope to put in some more time on Clay soon as well.

Thanks for reading!

Interviewed!

Recently, Paul from Selfpublishersshowcase.com interviewed me. It was really fun, sometimes difficult, but definitely exciting. I was blown away by how relevant the questions were. I genuinely feel as though Paul has taken a personal interest in his author’s and their writing, and that is a really good feeling. Anyway, check out the interview.

So few updates… sorry:-)

I’ve been working full time for the last month on several short stories and concepts all as a work-for-hire gig. The project has been a lot of fun so far, and I’m excited to see where it all goes!

It’s still pretty early in development, and so there isn’t much to share really. Also, all of my efforts are under a standard work-for-hire paradigm, so the work belongs to the investor as it should… not my place to share. Suffice it say though, it’s been great and I’m going to continue with the project for as long as there is interest.

I’m learning a great deal and challenging myself, so no matter what, my writing skills are being tested, shaped, and improved.

Oh, and I still managed to get in some work on, Clay. Super excited about that!

And my side project with friends involving pirates<=out of my element, but still pretty fun> received a large chunk of my time as well.

Anyway, thought I’d explain my relative absence. I tend to update facebook and twitter more often than here, because I can send out tiny bits about anything on my mind without editing… much:-P.

Damn, almost forgot! I was reading a lot too (when I wasn’t playing Steam games… summer sale is awesome).

Metagame <= fun, interesting, ultimately not really my style.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency <= read it years ago, and thought it was time to return. Great book. Funny, but also with several bits of relevant satire. Recommend it for the Electric Monk alone.

Zap Gun another piece of Philip Dick’s brilliance and I love it.

Okay. Caught up! back to work!
