About Me

In addition to pretending to write, I edit Nanoism ( ), an online publication dedicated to very very short fiction (okay, okay, fine—twitter-fiction).

Recently, I became a physician.

I also post daily 140-character mini-stories/fictional sentences/story ideas/writing prompts at 12am Central Standard Time @midnightstories //

Why do you write?

Everybody needs a hobby, and my wife says I'm getting too old for videogames.

Thanks Ben for reading "She spread her legs and flew away" - I'll send it off to Nanoism's group!

David Erlewine – Mar 09, 2010

Thanks for the blog post. Indeed, man, sticking w/ the 3 AM story is a good's one of my longest pieces (in a long while at least). I owe you an e-mail on that other thing. Bear w/ me. I'm falling behind on a number of fronts.

David Erlewine – Feb 23, 2010

I lived in Austin...yeah a med school would be great. SA is nice, too. GOod luck with your studies and your writing, Ben. Oh and I closed my Twitter acct b/c it got hacked. Someone wants me to reduce my online presence (Mom, is that you? Wifey, you?)

David Erlewine – Feb 22, 2010

You're famous! Wait, and you're in Austin now? Saw the link on Htmlgiant.

David Erlewine – Jan 23, 2010

Dude! I need to get my act together. I never saw the Micro Nod...or I think I heard about it from the very kind Marcelle but then didn't see your Twitter link. Thanks, bud, for the nod! Maybe it'll get me to write something now. I'm horrible these days.

M.H. – Jan 22, 2010

You are welcome Ben - also love "Will Babysit for Little $$$" at matchbook along with your critical piece. Both are brilliant!

M.H. – Jan 19, 2010
