A few weeks ago I received my first positive reply for a short story. The great news came from the awesome people at Schlock and you can read it on the Schock website

A few afterthoughts:
  • kind of nice to see my name on the cover.
  • as it happens with things we make, after some time passes we see all the mistakes. This one is no exception. I tried to do more than just one thing and that didn’t quite work out and now I see all the ways I could have done it better.
  • the publication on the zine, however, gave me the needed encouragement and optimism. 
  • also, the best way to get better is to keep writing.
