I’ve never published more than one story a year and here I’ll have two this summer!
I’m thrilled to report that SNReview wrote to me the other day to inform me they want to publish my story, “The Small of Her Back,” in their summer issue (which must be coming out any minute now!).
That now makes six out of my thirteen stories in my collection that will have been published by the end of 2009. That, combined with my applying for an Ohio Arts Council grant, makes me feel like there is momentum now.
I can’t give up, no matter how daunting the task, no matter how tired I am from burning the candle at six ends.
I even have a new story bubbling up. Now that is exciting!
