Another of my short stories has been accepted. I’ve unfortunately got to wait a year for publication, which makes me a little nervous as anything can happen between now and then. Still, I needed some good news. Those rejections were really starting to add up.

Of the three short stories I’ve been pushing over the last two years, this one was the most difficult to write. In fact, it was the first time I’ve ever really taken a step back and radically reworked something. I was reluctant at first, because I liked the original version. But it’s proof, if any were needed, that listening to feedback is key.
