  • (1888PressRelease) March 16, 2023 - Late last year, I found an online publishing competition from a Danish publishing house.
    'Write a short story about Solar punk.'

    Solar punk - what would happen if solar and wind power worked and everybody loved each other. (It didn't sound like the type of punk I grew up with, but ...)

    I started writing short stories and liked it.
    Then I began focusing on developing skills.

    I wrote a couple of short stories, and collected them in a small book.
    Some are weird, some are fun, and some you should not let your kids read..
    which is why this book has an age limit of 18.

    Then I turned to writing books in Danish, my native language.
    I also started learning how to use Midjourney AI to make covers.

    In the middle of February, I got this crazy idea...
    A guy walking his Battle Unicorn, and going into a shop to buy food.

    And now I have collected those short stories and placed them in a book..
    Including the Lucky Ukrainian, the Lowest Muslin, and the last is a dark, tragic love story with a happy ending, 'The First Date.'

    I didn't win the competition, and I never heard from the publishing house again.
    (Maybe because my stories were not really about their Hippy/woke version of Solar punk.)
