The Unstuck Kickstarter Campaign Is Live!

The Unstuck Kickstarter campaign went live today. Unstuck is a small, nonprofit publication, so every dollar helps. Check out the campaign, watch the short video about the journal, point and laugh at my ten seconds of screen time, and consider throwing a few dollars our way. Spread the word, too. Our initial ask is a modest one, and every dollar helps.

In celebration of our Kickstarter campaign, each weekday from July 30th to August 24th we’ll be posting excerpts from the first issue and interviews with the authors. The first interview, conducted by talented assistant editor Janalyn Guo, is with the fantastic Arthur Bradford. Go check it out!

Speculating

I’ve started taking notes on new (or to-be-rewritten) stories for the first time in quite a while.  I spent most of last year channelling my energy into editing and polishing old pieces.  The stress and system shock of moving, however, has jarred something loose in me.  I’m making things up again.

I don’t have a desk yet.  I don’t even have my own computer.  But I’m working.

Lately I’ve been asking myself questions like…

Are werewolves gluten-intolerant?

Is social anxiety partially caused by a hyper-awareness of social hierarchies?

Would a completely digitized public library bother to maintain any kind of physical branch space?

How do agoraphobes feel about underground spaces?

Do robots make good pets?

What’s a good A.V. setup for someone who almost never leaves a studio apartment?

And so on, and so on.
