hobart movie reviewer and bff (4-EVER!) sean kilpatrick continues to blow our minds and other less clean body parts with his fucked up brilliant gibberish words. “Note to critics: your penis is never bigger than your complaint. Every movie inspires us into jail or isn’t done.”

Hobart :: Ask Mira
mira’s second column is up today on hobart, despite this warning:
“Actually, come to think of it, I wouldn’t recommend most of the things I just listed. I honestly can’t imagine what aspect of the way I present myself in person or on the internet has lead anybody to believe that I have healthy coping mechanisms, or that taking advice from me is a good idea.”

A Debut Novel’s Long Road to Publication: Mary Miller
In 2006 Miller met Aaron Burch and Elizabeth Ellen, the publishers of Short Flight/Long Drive Books, on Zoetrope, an online literary magazine and writer’s community. The two began SF/LD Books as an extension of Hobart, their popular literary magazine, and they regularly communicated with Miller via Zoetrope and other online journals, such as elimae and SmokeLong Quarterly, commenting on each other’s work and developing a professional friendship. After two years, Ellen asked Miller if she wanted to write a short story collection for SF/LD, which, at that point, had published only a single title—a memoir by Michelle Orange. “I didn’t think I had enough material for a collection, but I went through everything I’d written and started putting together a manuscript,” Miller said. “I ended up with 175 pages; they accepted it shortly thereafter. There was no question of whether I’d go with them or someone else. I hadn’t been shopping around a manuscript at all, and knew very little about the business.”

some of the hardest work in writing is not crafting the fine sentence, but getting characters to walk across rooms.

But before I dissect Earthbound's wild array of usical styles and 16-bit vibrato, I have to let myself get sidetracked by the Super Nintendo controller. I bought an original so I could creepily caress it, this being the privilege of a writer doing research.

"A story works when there’s momentum, life behind the words," Mary Miller told Matthew Salesses at The Rumpus. She needs that momentum for her new novel, The Last Days of California, about a family driving to California for the rapture. Also, Amy Butcher wrote about her favorite Millerisms at Hobart.
