Good Writing, Bad Week
Last week wasn't fun. My mother was in the hospital, and my car needed a new starter motor.
But at least it was good for my writing. I had two short stories accepted for MAIN LINE VOICES, an anthology set in the Philadelphia area. And a story of mine, "Bustles Went Out of Fashion in 1905," was accepted by LINGUISTIC EROSION.
Finally, my flash fiction story called "Potemkin" just went online today on THE RUSTY NAIL site. I've read that story to audiences at several bookstore and library events, and it's always gotten laughs in the right places. So I'm glad to finally get it published.
But I'm not sure the victories balance out the defeats. Or maybe that's just my anhedonia talking.
