Anyone interested should head over to www.chuckpalahniuk.com and watch the live stream of Chuck's reading. I would have posted earlier, but I just found out...maybe it was posted.

I got in like 45 minutes late but it's pretty awesome. He just mentioned in the Q&A that he wants to open back up the anthology they were heading up at The Cult workshop, hm I wonder if that coincides with some of those achievements we have here.

They are replaying it now, I don't know how many times this will stream, hopefully it can be an on demand item on the site. We'll see.

OhMyGod.

That means I have to do the rewriting and editing too.

I want to cuddle one of those inflatable skeletons now.

I bet the anthology project doesn't get published for another 2-3 years.

Sigh.

I was the one who asked Chuck the qustion about the Anthology at the reading in NY last night.  I didn't watch the Live Stream, so I don't know how he came through on camera... but I can say standing in front of him, he seemed uncomfortable about the whole topic.  When he was saying that he wanted to see more writing and that he needed 10-20 more solid stories, he really looked like he was straining to put it as nicely as he could... as if he just wanted to say "Fuck that idea".  I'm sure I could have read it completely wrong... but I don't think so.  It was an interesting night...

I'm hoping they open it up again. I'd write like crazy to get included.

Paul,

Thanks for asking the question and thanks for posting. That is interesting from what you said. Watching it online, I didn't pick up on that at all. All that I can think from what he said last night is that the whole project has probably been pushed back another 2-3 years. FML.

He told me in person during the "Tell-All" tour that he really liked my story. But I guess he didn't like it enough, or he was lying (hah).

Did you have a story nominated Paul?

Is there a theme for the anthology so I could write something that is more likely to be chosen? If it is still open, that would motivate me to write during all of my free time! I mean ALL of it.
