My First “Published” Words

Hey, I finally got published! Not uploading my stuff to Amazon or GoodReads, but sending it to a web-mag slush pile.

It went in late, though. When the time came to look for it, it didn’t show. That was a bit of a telling point for me to maybe scrap this whole idea of writing. Instead of sending a note like, “Where is it?” I just kicked a can and walked off to give quality time to my real job. My real job does deserve it.

Anyway, I just got the note from David Gregory that my 500-word short surfaced, so woo hoo, I’m on my way to… I don’t know — probably continuing to give quality time to my real job. But the dream goes on…
