For this week’s interview, we are honored to showcase author Gage Garza! Gage’s debut flash fiction piece “Forest Fire” was published in our first issue a couple of weeks ago (which you can read HERE). You can also connect with Gage on Twitter!
We recently ran a poll on our Twitter account asking authors how long it takes them to write a short story. Below are the results:
It looks like most people take less than 4 weeks to write a short story. For a lot of people it takes less than 1 week. That makes perfect sense since a short story is normally less than 6,000 words, so it really only takes 1 burst of momentum to get a first draft done!
What about you? How long does it take you to generally write a short story? Let us know in the comments below!
As a magazine that focuses on thrillers, every week we showcase an article that discusses some thriller movie or book news. Today we’re focusing on the upcoming standalone Joker Origin Movie!
Warner Bros. and DC Films have finally announced the official title and release date for the Joker Origin Movie, which stars Joquain Phoneix as the Clown Prince of Crime. After a lot of speculation, it was recently revealed that Phoenix is officially on board to star in the film. Since that announcement, the actor has been a lot more open about his choice to take the role on.
The film’s title has been revealed to simply be Joker. A release date of October 4, 2019 was announced, so I’m sure more details on the rest of the cast will be announced in the coming weeks. Tod Phillip (the director of War Dogs) is set to direct.
I was honestly not excited about the movie until the lead actor was announced. He’s an amazing star and I’m excited to see what Phoenix does with the role! I’ve been a fan of his ever since Gladiator and Walk the Line, and he definitely has an amazing acting range and can play the crazy lunatic character well. The title suggests that this film will be more of a character piece that focuses on the titular character and his psyche and rise to infamy. Fingers crossed that this turns out better than the recent DC Comics films. Only the future will tell.
We are excited to announce that Thriller Magazine is now accepting submissions for our 2nd issue until October 15th! We’re looking for great short stories, flash fiction, poetry, artwork, and some book reviews.
