In addition to pretending to write, I edit Nanoism ( http://nanoism.net ), 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 // http://twitter.com/midnightstories.
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!
Thanks for the blog post. Indeed, man, sticking w/ the 3 AM story is a good sign...it'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.
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?)
You're famous! Wait, and you're in Austin now? Saw the link on Htmlgiant.
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.
You are welcome Ben - also love "Will Babysit for Little $$$" at matchbook along with your critical piece. Both are brilliant!
Great piece at Writer's Bloc, Ben - Kudos :)
Thanks regarding the PANK interview. Roxane and Guy made it an easy one for me to enjoy. Glad you liked.
I love Ben White. I love all people whose entire name is two syllables.
Likewise. :) Thanks for your comments!
dude, thanks for the fave and web assistance...
Thanks, Ben. I always wonder if anyone reads those things. It was a fun one to participate in.
thanks for the word Ben!
(checking bagels and cereal off list)...hope that's tea in the pic, bud. coffee is up for grabs!
goood interview bud. working on a serial while my son eats, well, you know, okay fine i'll say it, cereal. no, no stories about cereal. i won't ruin all those boxes, en masse.
your message on twitter was hilarious! did i post a reply in the right place? I saw it at 430 am before catching my train. in the erlewine abode, every thursday is riblet thursday.
Thanks so much Ben! And welcome :)
just became a fanboy.
Finally made a Facebook page for Nanoism. Virtual hugs for those who become "fans" :: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nanoism/138804737905
dude, i made the title change. my wife just asked ... so you've ruined riblets and durian (my titular story)...what's next?
yeah? okay....yeah, i can do that. thanks, ben. ben ben, be-en white. ben ben, he likes to bite. ben ben, be-en white. ben ben, he's like a light....
Your wish is my command. Done.
Haha, you know you were my first. Jessi, is making everything far too easy for me. Soon, it'll be my turn to submit to you!
Nice to see you here, Ben. If there is a @midnightstories fanclub I should know about, please let me know.
Ben! Welcome to naut-y town.
...and when the time comes, you might have better luck selling the haiku on craigslist. the standards are slightly lower.

Welcome, Ben. I love nanoism.
Fancy meeting you here!
