leaving-disturbia-street-photosSo Leaving Disturbia is a concept with which I’ve been playing around (well, more accurately, it sort of burns in my soul). In fact, there’s an 8,000-word short story of mine out there under consideration, being judged by strangers-with-“credentials.” I keep trying the old-school methods, mostly because we artists supposedly “have to,” as if they even matter anymore. I wonder if I should just throw that story out there in the Court of Public Opinion, on the side of a curb somewhere, to flap in the wind and fend for itself. I wonder if it’s time to completely trash tradition.
