The women of the Southern Summer Comfort Book Tour came together in the kind of self-funded promotional stunt that seems to be the norm for independent writers on small presses, which often lack the resources to support a book tour.
Fortunately, the five bonded over a diet of whiskey, gas-station food and a shared love of writing.

(via 5 states in 7 days bonding over whiskey and a shared love of writing - CNN.com)

YOLO

fast-machine:

chloe caldwell and i spent our time in southern indiana alone in our hotel room drinking whiskey and skyping with random people because the young male student we tried to lure to our hotel there wouldn’t come (you know he’s regretting this right now but also, eff it, cuz he wasn’t even old enough to buy us more whiskey) and marie calloway wouldn’t skype with us (wtf?).

hotel culture, y’all!

fast-machine:

HOTEL CULTURE - HOBART 15 - SUBMIT

Hobart print subs are reopened. the next theme (for issue 15) is “hotel culture.” whatever that means. don’t take it too seriously. aaron and i are reading all subs blind; will each pick 4 stories independently and 3 or 4 together. SUBMIT.

i don’t know why we picked this theme. i just really love hotels. nice ones. shitty ones. in cities. in the middle of fucking nowhere. your sub need not be set in one. a passing mention, maybe? who the fuck knows.

My Brother Became Dependent On Online Walkthroughs: Once, when I was little

kinda love how read that Fast Machine looks.

There is a Excel spreadsheet somewhere in my computer that lists every story in Fast Machine (Short Flight/Long Drive), and then in the following columns, different aspects or classifiable elements: age of narrator, age of other characters, animals (?), themes, locations, happy/sad (?), types of sex, etc. See, I wanted to do a book report, but instead make different mix-tapes using 15-20 stories. See, I sent a message to Hobart promising that I’d write a review if they sent me a copy. I never wrote that review. Until now, kind of, maybe.  See, when I read Elizabeth Ellen for the first time, it wasn’t really my first time. She came out with a chapbook on Future Tense called Before You She Was A Pit Bull. Many of the stories in the chapbook are in the big book. I was rereading a part of my life when I was happy, ensconced in a Seattle forbidden to me previously but now/then open and bleeding like warm concrete in summer. Elizabeth’s stories dance with each other. I was reminded of William Gay and Sugarbaby. My idea of making mix-tapes of the stories was almost more for me to figure out who these people were. Like Chloe, like herself, Elizabeth writes truths.
